Iowa Political Alert: Behn, former senator for Carroll, considers gov run

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

Republican State Sen. Jerry Behn of Boone, who represented Carroll
County for most of two terms before redistricting after the 2000
elections, says he's "seriously considering" running for governor in
2010. Behn said he's talking with supporters and others about a
possible bid. He joins what is a growing list of potential candidates
that includes State Rep. Rod Roberts, R-Carroll. Behn said he had no
firm timetable in mind at this point for making an announcement. A
social conservative with strong credentials in the pro-life community,
Behn spent much of the interview hammering Democratic Gov. Chet Culver
on fiscal and economic matters. Culver is borrowing too much money and
spending the state's future away, Behn contends.
