I wish the whole state could vote for all the state offices. I would liked to have been able to vote against Mr Boswell. The way he run was was filthy. The old man should be ashamed...........

Leonard, you have two more years in a minority congress. Time to do what is right for Iowa. People are tired of the Government Push into our lives.....turn it around.

I am ashamed to be in this state that would elect this "Obama Lap Dog". He has voted for everything that will hurt Iowans and Americans. I have e-mailed him often over the last couple of years and all I got back was a form letter. I even translated one of them into Russian to see if he could understand that. Just got a form letter! What a BUM!!!

Well, when you spread enough negativitity about your apponent anyone could have beaten Zaun. This guy can't win unless he spreads half truths and total lies.

Well, at least his yes mam votes won't count this time around and in two years maybe the republicans in this district can find someone that he can't find something negative to smear across the TV.

I like his comment about term limitations. He said he would run for only four terms and is now going to serve his seventh. This guy can't even tell the truth when it really doesn't matter.

Boswell is the meanest person ever to run for office in my 40 years of voting....Sad. What will a person do to get elected? What Boswell did. Very, Very sad....

How arrogant can someone be? It isn't like he won in a landslide (like Grassley) and by his statements he is showing he is a professional politician and is only out for himself. I never liked the guy but after seeing all his nasty commercials against Zaun (rather than his own accomplishments for Iowa?) it confirms he will do anything to return to DC.

we probably have criminals in prison that are more honest and care more about Iowa than he does. i did my part and voted against him

Maybe there should be a recount of the votes to make sure they are correct and that he did not cheat and lie about the number of votes. I would like to know where these cockroaches came from to vote for him.

I was really saddened by his being re-elected until I realized that his wings will be clipped. As a minority in the House he will not have the power that he had previously.
