DES MOINES, Iowa A Democratic Congressional candidate from Iowa is canceling a campaign event later this week with Senator John Kerry.
Brucy Braley says Kerry's recent comments about the Iraq war were inappropriate.
Braley is running against Republican Mike Whalen in Iowa's First District congressional race. It's a contest considered to be one of the most competitive House races in the country.
Braley's decision to distance himself from Kerry came as a furor grew from comments Kerry made about the Iraq War during a campaign stop in California on Monday...
Looks like Kerry is "radioactive" everywhere on the campaign trail now if Dan Riehl got his new non-schedule right. Looks like Lurch really screwed the pooch this time.
The American Legion is demanding an apology from Kerry now.
