The Iowa Republican: Branstad's in. Is Culver out?

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Former Governor Terry Branstad announced the dates and the cities of
his announcement tour yesterday. Branstad will formally enter the race
on January 19th. Branstad served four terms as governor from 1983 to
1999 and is now running for an unprecedented fifth term. Branstad's
four day announcement tour will take him to seventeen counties all
across Iowa. He plans to visit Cedar Rapids, Council Bluffs,
Davenport, Denison, Des Moines, Fairfield, Harlan, Mason City, Mt.
Pleasant, Muscatine, Orange City, Ottumwa, Pella, Sioux City, Spencer,
Storm Lake, and Waterloo. The tour is set to begin in Des Moines. Last
October, Branstad retired from Des Moines University in order to spend
more time talking to Iowans and evaluating his potential political
comeback. A number of polls, including a poll conducted by, have shown that Branstad would defeat Governor
Culver handily in a head-to-head matchup.
