The Iowa Republican: GOP gubernatorial primary begins to take shape

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Saturday's Republican Party of Iowa fall fundraiser provided the first
opportunity to see all six Republican gubernatorial candidates share
the same stage and make their case to the assembled audience. While
former governor Terry Branstad has been in the race for almost a month
now, this was the first time he has joined the other candidates at an
event. By now, you have probably read various media accounts of the
event. Branstad's speech was good on content, but his delivery was
lackluster to say the least. Branstad's primary opponents took the
stage without prepared remarks, but he was scripted, and it was
obvious that he was not prepared to deliver the remarks as his
campaign would have hoped.
