Essential Estrogen: Former female legislator pushes re-gov movement

Excerpted from this post at Essential Estrogen

A former female member of the Iowa House has launched a movement to
"draft" former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad into the upcoming Republican
gubernatorial primary. The announcement, which I found on facebook,
quotes Greiner as saying, "Everywhere I go, everyone asks me how can
we get Terry Branstad to run for Governor? Like so many Iowans, I
desire experienced leadership in these challenging times our state
faces. Therefore, I decided to organize an effort to encourage
Governor Branstad to run." A video, primarily comprised of photos of
the younger Branstad, is available on the newly launched Web site, and
there is also a twitter account for the movement. Greiner, a resident
of Keota who represented Washington County and portions of Johnson and
Jefferson counties during her term in the legislature, chose not to
seek re-election in 2008 and her seat was taken by Democrat Larry
Marek.
