Republican candidate hopeful Mark Rees was visiting Marion County this past week to meet with constituents and familiarize them with his platform. Reese is a candidate for the Republican nomination to challenge Democratic Congressman Leonard Boswell for the Third District Seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. Reese says he believes he is the only candidate who stands a chance against Boswell. Rees adds that he believes he is a mainstream candidate that represents not only the Republican party but people across the country. Rees is one of six active candidates for the Republican nomination for the Third District Seat.
