Congressional candidate websites

A few moments ago I wanted a tidbit of information about GOP congressional candidate Mariannette Miller-Meeks of Ottumwa, so I logged onto her campaign website.  I clicked on issues.  A blank page came up.  I clicked on experience.  Again, nothing.

I decided to check other campaign websites for Iowa’s congressional candidate.  Congressman Dave Loebsack, a Democrat from Waterloo, who represents the second district, is the person Miller-Meeks faces in November. He doesn’t have a campaign website.

Moving to the first district, David Hartsuch, the Republican Party’s candidate, doesn’t have a campaign website. Congressman Bruce Braley, a Democrat from Waterloo, has a campaign website.  It took a long time to load and I sort of gave up after three or four minutes.

In the third district, Congressman Leonard Boswell, a Democrat from Des Moines, has a website that was updated for his primary race against Ed Fallon.  It doesn’t look as if it’s been updated since June.  Boswell’s Republican opponent, Kim Schmett, has a website that features an August 12 Des Moines Register piece when you log on.

In the fourth district, Congressman Tom Latham, a Republican from Ames, has a website that has a sign-up/donation pop up before you get to the actual home page.  Democrat Becky Greenwald of Perry, the candidate who’s challenging Latham, has a campaign website with one of those sign-up/donation screens, too,

In the fifth district, Congressman Steve King, a Republican from Kiron, has a capaign website. It features a quiz as well as some of the news releases from his congresional office.  Democrat Rob Hubler of Council Bluffs, the candidate who’s challenging King, has a campaign website. I clicked on the word "blog" in the tool bar at the top.  It pulled up a blank page.

  1. Kay,
    Don’t know what you’re seeing..but I brought up Dr. Mariannette Miller-Meeks web pages just fine…

  2. You must be having issues w your computer bc I got both of miller-meeks tabs to open on her page and found a website for congressman loebsack at right away.

  3. I checked out the website and it was fine. I believe it was your own software on the computer that was having loading.

    LAZY Post. I expect better of you Henderson.
    Have you ever used a Google search?

  5. Yes, I do have a campaign website:
    True, it’s not that flashy with the bells and whistles, but I don’t have the special interest money of my opponent so it will have to do.
    if anybody wants to talk with me personally, my number is 563-823-8442.
