Jim Gibbons wants to take down Rep. Leonard L. Boswell, (D-Iowa).

Gibbons, a former championship wrestling coach at Iowa State University, is seeking the Republican nomination to oppose Boswell in the 3rd district in and around Des Moines.

Gibbons, who left coaching in 1992 and is now a financial adviser and television analyst, told The Iowa Republican blog that he is “concerned about the direction of the country. Spending is out of control in Washington; it’s unsustainable.”
