Rogers mulls Congress run after Paulsen opts out

Iowa State Rep. Walt Rogers, R-Cedar Falls, says he hopes to decide within about a month whether to run for Congress following Iowa House Speaker Kraig Paulsen’s decision not to run.

“We’ll be doing all the contacts, giving it real thorough analysis, and making a decision as soon as we can,” Rogers said Wednesday. He said he will be making contacts in Iowa and nationally as he weighs his options.
