The Iowa Republican: GOP primary needs to be about issues, not personality

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

At noon on Friday, former Governor Terry Branstad will address the
students, faculty, staff, and board members of Des Moines University.
The speech, which will be held in the Student Education Center, is
expected to Branstad's farewell to the university that he has spent
the previous six years leading, but it is also expected to be the
beginning of his quest to take back control of Terrace Hill.
Regardless of what Branstad says in his speech, the media will only
focus on what Branstad says about his gubernatorial aspirations. It's
hard to blame the media for wanting to focus on the start of his
campaign. For months, Branstad has played a cat and mouse game with
the media in regards to his political future, so when he does finally
go on the record for the first time as a gubernatorial candidate, it
will undoubtedly be a big deal.
