Boswell honored by his competitor, Latham

WASHINGTON, D.C. (KWWL) -

Congressman Tom Latham honored a colleague and competitor who's finishing his 8th term in Washington.

Latham organized a special tribute today for Leonard Boswell on the House floor.

It comes after Latham defeated Boswell in a battle of long-term incumbents in November.

During the past few weeks, Latham encouraged Iowans to submit letters about Boswell.

Latham read several today, including one from the Governor Terry Branstad and another from Senator Chuck Grassley.

Boswell thanked Latham for organizing the tribute and wished him well in his next term.
