The Iowa Republican: Rants accuses Branstad of wanting to raise the gas tax

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

State Representative Chris Rants accused former Governor Terry
Branstad of wanting to raise the state's gas tax Saturday night. Rants
made the accusation at a Dubuque County Republican Party event. Rants
began his five minute speech by saying that he had had a difficult
day. Rants was in Des Moines that morning at an event for State
Representative Kent Sorenson and then he headed for Republican events
in Decorah and Dubuque. Rants admitted that he was struggling to
decide whether or not he should give his usual speech about property
taxes. He then informed the crowd that he jettisoned that speech so he
could talk to them about what happened to the gubernatorial candidates
in Decorah earlier that afternoon.
