I haven’t endorsed anybody… on the GOP side for the 2010 Iowa Gubernatorial race.  Now in the general election I would vote for Gumby over Debt Culver, but for now I don’t have a pony in this race.  I’ve gotten numerous Facebook page requests/group requests.  I haven’t accepted any of them yet, but will likely join all of them for info sake.  I subscribe to RSS feeds and mailing lists, etc, but don’t translate that as support.

I will eventually, but as of right now, I haven’t.  Just want to be clear.  Right now we have Bob Vander Plaats, Representative Christopher Rants, Senator Paul McKinley, Christian Fong, and Representative Rod Roberts.

Senator Jerry Behn is still on the periphery. Congressman Steve King is still mulling it over.  Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey is definitely out.  State Auditor David Vaudt has been out, but was he ever really in? (I never heard any talk of him really being serious about running.)

I’m still waiting on my interview requests… hint, hint.

There you go.

  1. Everyone talks about Obama losing Dem support in the midterm elections, if any number of GOP-ers get elected. But what happens if he loses some guvs? How do the guvs impact things?

    1. In the short-term it probably wouldn’t have as much effect as say a Congressional shift.

      Long-term though… it could have some impact. State sovereignty bills… states refusing federal money… etc.

      I think you’ll also see more future leaders and potential presidential candidates down the road.

      Hard to say though.
