3rd District Democrat Boswell Wins Eighth Term

  • Photo
DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Democratic Rep. Leonard Boswell has won an eighth term in the U.S. House, overcoming a tough challenger from Republican state Sen. Brad Zaun.

Zaun, a former mayor of Urbandale, sought to make Boswell a symbol for what's wrong in Washington. Zaun linked Boswell to national Democratic leaders and blamed them for mismanaging the economy and increasing the deficit.

Boswell responded that he's gained seniority in the House and effectively served his district and the state. Boswell says Democrats successfully prevented an economic meltdown.

The race featured a steady stream of negative television ads from both candidates.
