Iowa Third District Democrat Leonard Boswell has heard the rumors or at least heard about them for the last few years now. Boswell turns 76 this Sunday. Will he retire? The Washington Post's Chris Cillizza wrote today about retirements in Congress and mentioned Boswell as one of two Congressmen to watch.
Boswell announced on election night in 2008 that he would run again in 2010. And he told us again Monday that he was running again this year. He said he just hadn't held his big, official announcement yet. Boswell was first elected to Congress in 1996.
