By my math, Congressman Bruce Braley becomes the fourth U.S. Representative from Iowa to join the social networking site, Facebook. Steve King, Tom Latham and Dave Loebsack all seem to have active Facebook pages. Leonard Boswell has a "Boswell for Congress" Facebook page. But it doesn't seem to be active. I found a post on there about a rally to help re-elect him for September 29, 2006. Perhaps that rally worked. I don't remember.
Here's the Braley news release today:
Braley Launches Congressional Facebook Page
Page Will Help Iowans Communicate with Braley
Washington, DC – Today, Rep. Bruce Braley (D-Iowa) announced the launch of his official Facebook page.
