Iowa Independent: Larson out, Lamberti on fence for 2010

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Former Republican state senator Chuck Larson, who was appointed by
President George W. Bush to be ambassador to Latvia, tells Lee
Enterprise political reporter Charlotte Eby he will not run for
governor in 2010, citing his two young children as the reason. Larson
becomes the latest in a series of Republicans to publicly put to rest
rumors of potential gubernatorial aspirations next year. Monday, state
Auditor David Vaudt said he would seek re-election rather than throw
his hat in the ring to challenge incumbent Democratic Gov. Chet
Culver. Former Gov. Terry Branstad and Vermeer Corp. CEO Mary Andringa
said they were not running earlier this month, and Iowa Ag Secretary
Bill Northey appears to be leaning towards running for re-election as
well.
