Iowa Political Alert: Vander Plaats to make official announcement

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

Sioux City businessman Bob Vander Plaats, the 2006 Republican nominee
for lieutenant governor who is leading the field for the party's 2010
gubernatorial nomination, will officially launch his campaign on
Monday, Sept. 7 in his hometown of Sheldon in northwest Iowa. "Labor
Day is the traditional start of the election season and Sheldon is the
natural place for me to officially kick off the campaign. Sheldon is
where I learned the value of freedom and leadership. It's where my
parents, teachers and neighbors instilled a traditional Iowa work
ethic in me. And, it's where I learned that the family is the
foundation of society and it is government's responsibility to foster
a strong family instead of trying to replace it," Vander Plaats said.
