Fallon Concedes Defeat in Culver and Conlin Races

Former Democrat State Representative Ed Fallon sent out an email conceding defeat for the Democratic candidates running for the U.S. Senate and Governor in Iowa.

Fallon began his email by writing, “Yup. The proverbial fat lady is singing, if not bellowing.”

He went on to say, “If you’re Chet Culver, you should be looking for a mid-level government job in Washington, DC about now (and rumor has it this is actually happening.) This week’s Iowa Poll shows the incumbent governor down 19 points to former- and future-Governor Terry Branstad.”

Fallon also believes its curtains for Roxanne Conlin’s U.S. Senate campaign.  The Des Moines Register poll showed her trailing Chuck Grassley by 31 points.
