"It's at about 90 percent."<p>The download takes about five minutes to complete. Paulios says it's a great way to check out local music: You could be waiting for a concert to start, download an album by the band you're about to see and then listen to it on the way home.<p>This is the Iowa City Library Local Music Project.

Steve King and the state's former first lady, Christie Vilsack.<p>Iowa is losing a seat in the House after the election, due to redistricting. Now ultra-conservative King is facing a more moderate electorate as he runs in the newly redrawn 4<sup>th</sup> Congressional District against a political newcomer.<p>This week, King and Vilsack took their messages to the Iowa State Fair, a magnet for political candidates.
