Iowa Political Alert: Does Roberts have right stuff for gov run?
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert
Early GOP vetting starts for 2010 with Carroll-area legislator in mix ... Iowa Republican strategist Tim Albrecht sees a canyon-sized opening for his party in the 2010 gubernatorial race in which a potential double-digit-sized list of challengers to Democrat Chet Culver is building. One legislator in the mix, although not formally announced, is State Rep. Rod Roberts, a Carroll Republican who has served west-central Iowa for a decade in Des Moines. Albrecht said Roberts, a social conservative, has the style and skills to hold the GOP's right base while reaching out to moderates and Democrats.
