Constitution Daily: Rethinking the Gubernatorial Primary
Excerpted from this post at Constitution Daily
With Vander Plaats, Rants, Fong, McKinley, Roberts, and Behn either in the gubernatorial race or seriously thinking about running, I think it is time we look at other potential candidates who haven't ruled the office out just yet. In doing this, I'm not diminishing the values of the current candidates; I just think the field isn't set yet. We have a couple more candidates possibly emerging. Remember, Doug Gross didn't jump in the race until January of 2002. But most importantly, out of all of Iowa, who's the best man or woman for the job? That is really where our thought process should start but often times we leap to the end and ask who has the best chance at winning. In doing so our platform is almost always compromised.
