Politically Speaking: Johnson pushes Branstad to run for governor
Excerpted from this post at Politically Speaking
The Draft (Terry) Branstad Political Action Committee has operated for a few weeks with the goal of pushing the former Republican governor to seek a fourth fifth term ... after two Democratic governors have held the post since Branstad departed. Branstad, 62, has said he's make making a decision in October on whether to leave his post as president of Des Moines University to return to politics. This week Draft Branstad has announced some Republican state legislators who've joined the team. Yesterday it was Jeff Kaufmann of Wilton, this morning it's David Johnson of Ocheyedan from far Northwest Iowa State Senate District 3.
