Posted November 19, 2009 at 5:31pm

Iowa state Sen. Brad Zaun (R) will be joining the Republican field vying to oppose Rep. Leonard L. Boswell (D) in the Des Moines-area 3rd district.

Zaun, who is serving his second four-year term in the Iowa Senate, told CQ Politics Thursday afternoon that he would make a formal announcement of his political plans after Dec. 1.

“And my intentions are to run against Leonard Boswell,” said Zaun, a vice president at the commercial real estate firm R&R Realty.
