Des Moines Register: U.S. Senate candidate Abby Finkenauer will appeal a judge’s ruling that says she cannot appear on Iowa’s June 7 Democratic primary ballot — a decision that has upended one of the state’s highest-profile political contests six weeks before early voting is set to begin. Finkenauer, who has been widely considered the front-runner in the Democratic primary, said Monday she would appeal the decision to the Iowa Supreme Court, casting it as “deeply partisan.” The state’s seven-member supreme court has agreed to hear oral arguments in the case Wednesday and will likely issue a decision by the end of the week.
