Politically Speaking: Rod Roberts in the 2010 GOP guv mix

Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking

It was one of those moments that catch you off guard. I just got an
e-mail from a reporter in our Des Moines bureau with the subject line
containing the words "Roberts" and "governor." Huh? Oh, Steve Roberts,
the former Iowa Republican Party chairman, must be running. Wait --
isn't his political prime time slightly in the past? No, it's Rod
Roberts, the state rep from Carroll. Now there's a name that makes me
smile. Prior to coming here at the Journal in 2002, for six years I
worked at the Carroll Daily Times Herald. I covered Roberts when he
served on the Carroll School Board and wrote some features about him
too — he's a minister and pretty good in a chorus too. I last ran into
Roberts (it's hard not to call him Rod) in summer 2007, when we
chatted about the GOP presidential field.
