Branstad Setting Up Campaign, Not Announcing Run



Bookmark and Share

With a historically productive legislative session wrapped up and bills signed with suitable pomp, Republican Gov. Terry Branstad is setting himself up to run for an unprecedented sixth term in 2014, even as he holds off announcing whether he'll actually seek re-election.
    
Although Branstad isn't indicating his plans, his powerful political operation is gearing up this summer with staffing and fundraising. And Branstad's team in the Iowa Capitol is starting work on policy proposals that could form part of the campaign platform.
    
Richard Schwarm, a longtime Branstad adviser and his former law partner, says: "It's his time table for when he announces, but I expect that it will be that he's running."
    
Branstad Chief of Staff Jeff Boeyink says if he opts to seek re-election, the campaign will be ready.
