Bleeding Heartland: Fong announces ten campus coordinators

Excerpted from this post at Bleeding Heartland

Republican gubernatorial candidate Christian Fong responded to a
weekend of renewed speculation surrounding Terry Branstad by
announcing that his campaign has recruited campus coordinators at all
of Iowa's leading universities and several colleges. ... The message to
Republican bigwigs is clear. Fong is serious about this campaign and
is building a strong organization in the GOP's weakest area: the youth
vote. Since colleges will be on summer break by the time next June's
primary rolls around, Fong's campaign will have to implement an
aggressive absentee ballot strategy. Early voting happens to be
another area where Iowa Republicans have been getting mauled in recent
years.
