The Iowa Republican: 8 simple rules: If Branstad wants to unify the Republican Party while running again for governor
Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican
Will he or won't he? The constant speculation over Terry Branstad coming out of retirement and running for a fifth term as Iowa governor continues. However, in my mind the speculation has been over for weeks now, because he's running and the signs saying so are obvious, not the least of which is the fact either he or his people have contacted and/or met with nearly every Republican constituency group of consequence in the last few weeks. So assuming he is already in and we're just waiting for him to make it official, the discussion now turns to what must he do to unify a very fractured Republican Party and do something a lot of Iowans in recent polling data would like to see done -- defeat Lt. Governor Debt Culver.
