Gov. Terry Branstad’s sixth term is in the bag, unless…
They say death and taxes are life’s only certainties. They, whoever they are, must not have heard about Gov. Terry Branstad’s sixth term.
He announced his candidacy for re-election this past week. And it’s in the bag, according to many politics watchers, including this one. Branstad’s got big bucks, high job approval and no marquee opponent. Iowa’s economy is good. He’s become like political comfort food for many of us, sort of like mustachioed macaroni and cheese.
But take heart, you Democrats, anything can happen in politics. In fact, I can envision 20 scenarios where Branstad loses in November.
