Ok, I know it’s a little out of character but I made a point to get my post up early today. It’s not that I have some great take, but I did want to comment of Branstad’s announcement that will occur later this morning.
Call me krazy, but if I was the oldest candidate in the race for Governor, I don’t know if I would launch my campaign for an unprecedented fifth term from the Iowa Historical Building. I’m sure there is some reason why Branstad’s campaign chose that as the location to launch his official campaign, but the last thing I’d want is a picture of him with some dinosaur or something in the background.
I know it’s close to the State Capitol and all the media that assembles these during the legislative session, but I can’t wait to see some of the images from the event. The last candidate to announce from the Historical building is John Edwards. That didn’t turn out too well for him if I recall correctly.
Anyway, who knows, I might be back with more later today.
