Terry Branstad, now president of Des Moines University, leads Culver 54% to 34%. Branstad, a Republican, was the youngest governor in Iowa history and served longer than anybody else, from 1983 to 1999.

Governors control or influence the redistricting process after the 2010 census.

I lived in Iowa during the entire nearly two decades Branstad
was governor and was very unimpressed with his leadership. Taxes remained high and cronyism was rampant. It is sad that the Republican party in Iowa hasn’t developed some new leadership and can offer the voters more than a rerun of Branstad.

It’s time for new Conservative leadership in IA. Branstad is old news. If he had wanted to be of service to the state, he should’ve taken out that Harkin trash back in the ‘90s.

39% for and incumbant against a little known candidate are horrible re-elect numbers.
