Blog for Iowa: Iowa GOP gubernatorial debate

Excerpted from this post at Blog for Iowa

The drive to Des Moines was as typical as any summer afternoon in Iowa
I can remember, with warm temperatures, cumulus clouds against an
azure sky, vast stands of field corn in tassel and patches of Queen
Anne's Lace, purple coneflowers, black-eyed Susans, daisies, horsemint
and cattails everywhere in the spaces between row crops and Interstate
80 leading to the GOP Gubernatorial Debate on July 22
at Drake University. As a progressive Democrat, I have been following
the re-organization of the Iowa Republican Party and was curious to
see their direction as evidenced by the gubernatorial candidate
debate. When Kim Lehman, President of the Iowa Right to Life
Organization, was elected to represent Iowa on the Republican National
Committee last summer, she said, "I think that this is an opportunity
for the Republican Party to rebuild."
