Iowa Independent: Conservatives shoot for early influence in 2010 gubernatorial contest

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

Controversial Christian radio host Steve Deace and conservative
blogger Craig Robinson are teaming up to test the field of potential
candidates to take on Gov. Chet Culver in 2010. The pair has already
winnowed the possible field down to four candidates -- former state
Sen. Jeff Lamberti, Senate Minority Leader Paul McKinley, former state
House Speaker Christopher Rants and Sioux City businessman Bob Vander
Plaats -- and is asking their readers and listeners to vote by text
message this Thursday. Results will be announced on Deace's WHO-AM
program that night. Of the group of candidates included in the
unscientific poll, only Vander Plaats has officially thrown his hat in
the ring, and even he has not made his candidacy "official."
