Branstad's Major Endorsement

Former Governor Terry Branstad has a major announcement today. How do I know? A news release his campaign issued yesterday said it was "major" three different times. Branstad's Communications Director Tim Albrecht doesn't have a reputation for over-hyping too often. If that's the case and this isn't just some lame attempt to get some "free media" coverage, then who could this major endorsement be, do you think? An Iowan? A former governor? An organization? An out-of-state celebrity-type? An out-of-state, well-known politician?

The news conference is set for 1:30 this afternoon. So get your guesses in now:)

Here's Monday's release:
Branstad to announce major campaign endorsement at Statehouse news conference tomorrow

Endorsement comes less than one month ahead of June 8 primary

(URBANDALE, Iowa) – Former Gov. Terry Branstad tomorrow will announce a major campaign endorsement during a Statehouse news conference. Details are as follows:

The major endorsement is David Vaudt? No big surprise and definitely worth the "majorly" hyped press release...
