Political Forecast: IA-Gov: Nussle's TouchPlay of desperation
Excerpted from this post at Political Forecast
... I'm sensing a strong force of desperation behind Jim Nussle's gubernatorial campaign, a desperation to save them from the bad poll numbers and their inability to motivate their base because of just how badly Republicans have screwed up this country at all levels. Not to mention, all the campaign problems from abortion to the Iowa Values Fund. ... And now, the Nussle campaign is reaching for straws by claiming there is some kind of secret plan or deal to bring back TouchPlay or to make the state settle and pay tons of cash to those business interests invested into TouchPlay. As many commentators have noted, this was just a way for Nussle to try and energize the base with an issue that wouldn't turn off independent voters.
