Price of Politics, Etc.: Gross doesn't think Vander Plaats is winning candidate

Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics, Etc.

Republican Doug Gross knows what it's like to lose a race for
governor. Democrat Tom Vilsack beat him in 2002. Gross doesn't want
his party to lose again. By the way, despite rumors circulating that
Gross wants to be his party's nominee again next year, he insists he
is not going to run for governor. Bob Vander Plaats, who has failed
twice before in his attempts to become governor, is the closest person
to a "candidate" for the Republicans. He told me he is running unless
his health or his family's health became a concern. O.K., back to
Gross... Gross and some allies paid for a statewide survey of what
Iowans want in a candidate.
