Branstad Ramps Up Re-Election Campaign

Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) and his team "are hiring campaign staff, opening a campaign headquarters and fundraising in earnest," the Des Moines Register reports.

"It's the unofficial flipping of the switch, and it means 'game on' for 2014 - even though the Republican governor says he won't publicly state for certain until next year whether or not he's seeking re-election."

Said Branstad adviser Doug Gross: "It will be easier for the Cubs to win the World Series than for a Democrat to beat Branstad. That being said, I expect him to run like he is 20 points behind."
