In Flyover Country: Northey for governor

Excerpted from this post at In Flyover Country

While Constitution Daily solicits thoughts on Bob Vander Plaats' run
for governor, and offered up a new missive today, Iowa Secretary of
Agriculture Bill Northey is the latest to refuse ruling out a
gubernatorial run during a recent interview. While we In Flyover
Country ultimately think he will decide against a run, it's incredibly
smart for him to not shut the door on the corn crib any too soon. Bill
has a great resume, and won in a Democrat year -- 2006. Is it solely
because Denise O'Brien inhumanely treated her livestock and allowed
them to die? Absolutely. However, Northey effectively exploited this
awful situation to his gain. Let's face it, Chet Culver is popular
enough to be re-elected, but faces some major problems. Don't you want
an opponent who can effectively outline these differences, and a
proven winner at doing it?
