The Iowa Republican: Vander Plaats fires a shot at Rants

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Bob Vander Plaats fired the opening salvo of the 2010 Republican
gubernatorial campaign yesterday. In his crosshairs was Chris Rants,
the former Speaker of the Iowa House and current member of the Iowa
House of Representatives, who is drumming up support for a
gubernatorial campaign of his own. Vander Plaats launched his attack
while doing an interview with Bill Salier who is filling in for Jan
Mickelson on WHO Radio. Vander Plaats said that, if elected, he would
sign an executive order banning same sex marriage that would allow
people the opportunity to vote on the controversial issue. Rants has
made statements saying that the Governor doesn't have the authority to
overrule the court with just an executive order, but has vowed to
fight to bring a marriage amendment to the people for a vote.
