Price of Politics, Etc.: Branstad to announce plans for governor
Excerpted from this post at Price of Politics, Etc.
Four-time Iowa Governor Terry Branstad wants a fifth term in office.
Sources close to Branstad tell me he will announce his plans for the
future during a speech at Des Moines University Friday at noon. The
news comes hardly as a surprise as this week Iowa Republican Party
Executive Director Jeff Boeyink announced he was quitting the party to
head up the 2010 Terry Branstad Committee, Branstad's organizational
wing of his campaign efforts. Sandy Greiner, a former Republican
lawmaker, led a group called "Draft Branstad". Yesterday, she sent out
a message yesterday to supporters of her efforts that said the group
would disband because of "mission accomplished". The group changed its
efforts to NextGen PAC.
