24-Hour Dorman: ChetChase 2010 - The week

Excerpted from this post at 24-Hour Dorman

Party of Five - Five Republican gubernatorial candidates/near-hopefuls/explorers met in a forum sponsored by Iowa Politics.com. ... There were gobs of agreement between Bob Vander Plaats, Chris Rants, Rod Roberts, Jerry Behn and Christian Fong. Another possible possibility, Paul McKinley, had a conflict and couldn't make it. They're not crazy about the smoking ban, but nobody showed much interest in relighting that coffin nail. ... Speaking of nostalgia, the candidates were asked whether they'd welcome former Gov. Terry Branstad in the race. Polls show the old guy is still fly with folks who still use the term "fly." Here is the candidates' composite answer, "I'd welcome such a fine statesman's ideas. But, please, don't dilly dally. Oh, and I'd just like to say future, future, future, future, future and, in conclusion, future."
