John Deeth Blog: Governor on offense with western trip

Excerpted from this post at John Deeth Blog

It's not an Official re-election announcement, but an email from
Governor Chet Culver's campaign committee landed in in-boxes this
morning announcing a campaign swing via train through the western end
of the state tomorrow. The vehicle, of course, has been a Democratic
icon since way before Joe Biden. Harry Truman rode the very same
tracks in his upset 1948 win. One of his major speeches of that
campaign was in Dexter, where he unveiled the new definition of the
GOP acronym as "gluttons of privilege," which Tom Harkin loves to
quote. Culver isn't inviting such direct comparisons. He's stopping
one town before and two stops after Dexter. But he is playing offense
with this trip.
