It’s Congressman versus Congressman in Iowa’s new third district. As Iowa Public Radio’s Sandhya Dirks reports, redistricting has put Congressmen Tom Latham and Leonard Boswell in a fight for their political lives.  

Republican Tom Latham and Democrat Leonard Boswell are running in one of only two Congressional races in the country to pit two incumbents against each other.
