Iowa Defense Alliance: Rants' Hail Mary and Vander Plaats pushes full steam ahead
Excerpted from this post at Iowa Defense Alliance
If someone follows politics at all they realize that bombshells are not dropped until an election draws near. In that way it will not allow the victim/opposition time to recover in time before voters go to the polls (even if the allegations are false). Christopher Rants and his week long launch of attacks on Bob Vander Plaats record as CEO of Opportunities Unlimited has unusual timing with the Republican gubernatorial primary still being a ways off. Or was the timing unusual? It was no secret that a popular former Iowa Governor was now in the mix of potential rivals for the nomination with a Draft Terry Branstad effort launching. Also, Bob Vander Plaats was going to be a media focus because of his official announcement of his candidacy.
