Vander Plaats for governor

4th Time is a Charm?--Is Bob Vander Plaats about to announce he will try for a fourth time to become Iowa's governor? Vander Plaats ran in 2002, 2006 and 2010 for the Republican nomination but failed. I just received this cryptic email about an announcement Friday. What do you make of it? Do you think he will announce that he is running as an Independent? Or will he start some movement because of the Prop 8 decision in California where a judge struck down the same-sex marriage ban? Something else? Here's the release:


Bob Vander Plaats will hold a news conference on the Statehouse grounds (at a location to be determined) at 10:30 a.m., Friday, Aug. 6.

If he runs he will take votes from Branstad, which will likely mean 4 more years of Chubby Chet and his cronies running the state.

Retiring out of Iowa is sounding better all the time.
