GOP Concerns Over Primary Race

WAUKEE, Iowa (AP) -- Some Iowa Republicans are quietly anxious that issues addressed during the U.S. Senate primary campaign will haunt the party come November, despite chipper talk that the five-way race is a healthy way to ignite the GOP.
Some say a recent ad for state Sen. Joni Ernst in which she fires a handgun may turn off some swing voters during the general election.

Others say former energy CEO Mark Jacobs' past support for climate-change legislation make him indistinguishable from likely Democratic nominee Bruce Braley.

Those Republicans vying to fill Democratic Sen. Tom Harkin's seat must convince the party faithful to vote for them in the June 3 primary, only to then face one of the nation's most politically balanced electorates in an election that could decide who runs the Senate.
