DES MOINES (AP) — As the 2014 election cycle begins to take shape, the candidates jockeying for position in the crowded GOP Senate primary are all trying to break away from the pack as the best option to take on Democrat Bruce Braley in the fall.

At least six little-known GOP hopefuls are competing to run against Braley, a congressman from Waterloo who is busy raising money and building his organization as the only Democrat in the field. Still, some Republicans hope that weak approval ratings for President Barack Obama and his policies may give Republicans a shot at the seat.
