Brad Zaun began his career as the owner of a hardware store, and then he became Mayor of Urbandale.
In 2010, Zaun lost to Congressman Leonard Boswell in a hotly contested election to represent Iowa in Washington.
He is currently a Republican State Senator, trying to outlaw automated traffic cameras.
In November, he'll try to win another term at the statehouse. Zaun is married, has five children, and lives in Urbandale.
Nothing was off limits when Dan Winters caught up with Zaun for three minutes in the chair.
