The Iowa Republican: A hotly contested primary could benefit Iowa Republicans

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

There is still a lot of political chatter out there following
TheIowaRepublican.com gubernatorial poll. This is especially true in
regard to how former Governor Terry Branstad did in a head-to-head
match-up against current Iowa Governor Chet Culver. Branstad crushed
Culver by 16 points. Since the polling results were announced, Iowa
Republicans have been contemplating two questions. The first question
- is will Branstad actually run? Only Branstad can answer that
question. Thus far, the former governor has side-stepped the question
by saying that he is focused on Des Moines University, but then he
says he would never rule anything out. Until Branstad gives a solid
yes or no answer, the chatter about a potential reemergence into
politics will remain.
