Wednesday was a difficult day for The American Independent News Network, which is the larger entity that operates The Iowa Independent. Our chief executive and founder announced two of our sister sites would close and their content would be moved to The American Independent.
Boswell dispels retirement rumors
Radio Iowa’s O.Kay Henderson has the scoop on a quick and to-the-point answer to all the political pundits of the world who question whether incumbent Democratic U.S. Rep. Leonard Boswell is contemplating retirement.
Speaking to a small group of reporters in Des Moines, Boswell made his intentions clear, but not official.
Boswell made clear his declaration was not — in his words — an “official announcement, but I’m running.” That would be two “I’m running” statements in less than 10 seconds.
Boswell, who is running for his eighth term, will face off with one of the five men seeking the Republican nomination in Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.
