Testy: Culver Storms out of WHO TV Interview

Yesterday, WHO TV 13 caught up with Governor Culver in Newton in Newton. Culver has been touring the state promoting his I-Jobs and economic development programs. Channel 13 asked the Culver a simple question, what new information are you delivering to the people of Newton that they are ready don’t know.

Culver refused to answer the question, not once, but three times. The governor then stormed out of the interview. Below is the video of the interview.

 

Channel 13 deserves to be applauded for asking such a simple question. Now they need to follow up and determine how much Culver’s pointless tours are costing the Iowa taxpayers.
