Latham jokes: “I am seriously reconsidering”

Congressman Tom Latham, a Republican from Clive, Iowa, announced weeks ago that he would not run for the U.S. Senate.  Today, Latham & his fundraising staff had a bit of fun with the Iowa political world’s obsession about the U.S. Senate race, writing in the subject line of an email: “I am seriously reconsidering.” The email was sent under Latham’s name.

Read the body of the email below:

Dear Friend:

You read that subject line right!

After experiencing today’s weather I am seriously reconsidering whether this truly is spring in Iowa.

But don’t fret.  I have it on very good authority that summer is on the way.  Really!  And I invite you to celebrate a well earned summer by Iowans at my annual family summer picnic – an event full of good food, music, fun and games for the whole family.

Your invitation will be arriving soon to join Kathy and I at this annual summer tradition.  So please mark your calendar now and save the date: Saturday, June 15, 2013 from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm taking place at Living History Farms in Urbandale, Iowa.

Stay warm and safe today and join me in dreaming of better days ahead!
