Branstad entered the race as a result of a draft movement, but once he was in, there was no stopping him. After fending off a host primary rivals, Branstad set his sights on Chet Culver.
Branstad maintained his message throughout the campaign, which included pointing out the numerous scandals that have plagued the current administration, the failure of I-JOBS, and the horrific mess that is the state budget under Gov. Culver.
Iowans are hurting right now, and even if an individual isn’t hurting personally, chances are they have friends and family who are struggling greatly. We just didn’t buy it when Culver cited all of his bizarre statistics claiming that things were fine and dandy. The people knew better, and they showed that with their votes on Election Day.
