Did you get a tape-recorded message on the phone from Rep. Steve King last week?
  • Mayor Adam Schweers’ Theory of Everything Carroll

    Carroll Mayor Adam Schweers Dec. 3 delivered a wide-ranging half-hour speech to a crowd of about 40 people at the Knights of Columbus hall during a public forum on housing. Schweers said he was not trying to strong-arm a Kansas City, Kansas, developer’s 32-unit, affordable-housing complex into the city. An earlier meeting in which the Carroll City Council rejected local incentives to help the company leverage an application for federal tax credits through the state got “out of hand,” Schweers said.

  • The dark greed  of corporate interests bread-bagged  a U.S. senator

    $85 million. That’s how much Democrats and Republicans and a colorfully striped array of outside interest groups spent on the U.S. Senate race in Iowa, according to the non-partisan Center for Responsive Politics (CRP). More money than Georgia ($66 million). More money than in Kentucky ($78 million), where Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell faced a spirited challenge.

    The latest Des Moines Register poll, released Saturday, showed Ernst at 47 percent and Braley at 46 percent, a statistical tie.
