King Decides NOT To Run For U.S. Senate

(Washington) -- Iowa Republican Congressman Steve King has made a decision with regards to the U.S. Senate race, but the decision is perhaps different than many would have thought.  King, the 4th District Congressman has announced he will not seek the position of U.S. Senate.  Now, that King has passed on the opportunity and other Republicans that were mentioned as possible contenders, Iowa Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey, Lt. Governor Kim Reynolds, and Iowa Congressman Tom Latham have also passed on running, the question now becomes, who will be the Republican candidate to face Democratic challenger Bruce Braley?  Braley, announced his candidacy in February, and has since captured the endorsements of Senator Tom Harkin, Former Congressman Leonard Boswell, Attorney General Tom Miller, and State Treasurer Micheal Fitzgerald.  Sources predict the race could be a spendy $25 million dollars.  Braley has already secured over a million dollars for the Senate campaign.
