iowa progress: Some Reflections Going into Gubernatorial Hell Week Well

Excerpted from this post at iowa progress

We're about a week out and things are starting to get crazy. If I were Chet Culver, I'd be feeling a little nervous. Though his website touts an eight-point lead over Nussle and claims no one else can beat him, I'm a little skeptical of this as a reason to vote for Culver.

First of all, I think we're going to beat Nussle in the fall. Period. Secondly, Blouin and Fallon have really made tremendous gains, which shouldn't be taken lightly. Blouin has proved his vast experience in public service make him extremely qualified, and his colleagues sure seem to recognize it.

Fallon has managed to overcome his "cooky" image and appeal to the independent-minded and party-faithful alike, building a huge, old school grassroots network.
