When Jim Mowrer out-raised Steve King for the third straight quarter

If this has ever happened before in an Iowa Congressional race, I’m not aware of the precedent: Democratic challenger Jim Mowrer has raised more money than incumbent Representative Steve King for the third straight quarter in Iowa’s fourth district. Not only that, during the first three months of 2014, Mowrer’s fundraising eclipsed King’s by even more than we saw during the third andfourth quarters of 2013.


Mowrer’s FEC filing shows $351107.30 in total contributions between January 1 and March 31.


King’s latest FEC filing shows just $121,041.08 in total contributions, more than he raised during the third quarter of 2013 but less than he raised in the fourth quarter.

When Jennifer Jacobs reported Mark Jacobs wasn’t as successful as he claims

Analyzing the financial health of a utilities company is tricky, experts agree, and the industry was without a doubt full of turmoil during Jacobs’ tenure as chief executive officer of a Texas independent power company.

But the facts are at odds with his message: Under his leadership as CEO, Reliant Energy/RRI Energy downsized rapidly. It fared worse than the competitors Jacobs suggested the Register use for equity performance comparison. His shareholders saw their stock value decline 86 percent. The company lost $7.7 billion in market value under his watch, and dropped out of the Fortune 500.
