The Iowa Republican: Branstad's silence is deafening

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

For almost a month now, the possibility that former Iowa Governor Terry Branstad might come out of retirement and run for governor has all but frozen the GOP gubernatorial race. Branstad has been more visible across the state as of late, attending Rotary Club meetings, county GOP meetings, and fundraisers for political candidates. He's also been careful not to sound like a candidate for governor. In a story that ran in Monday's Quad City Times, Margaret Hough, Branstad's long time assistant, said that the former Governor isn't granting any interviews until he makes up his mind. Hough's statement is telling on a number of levels. First, it confirms that Branstad is seriously considering a comeback.
