The venerable Charles Ernest Grassley said on Iowa Press this weekend that for 08 "Only one stands out right now." In his estimation that person is fellow Senator John McCain. He did add the Rudy Giuliani would stand out as well "if he were in campaign mode."
Grassley continued on McCain. "He's coming into Iowa strong. I believe the thing that would appeal the most to Iowa Republicans is his fight for openness in the appropriation and budgeting process."
"McCain's got to prove that he can get a broad base of Republican support, particularly among conservatives. If he can show that, he may be anointed"
It's a Hawkeye state! (but we already knew that)
Kerry thinks his 04 message is pertinent today. HA
Bloomberg as an independent in 08. (We think that's a tough sell if McCain or Rudy are the nominee)
Nussle/Culver... Dead Heat.
The schedule for Huckabee's next trip to Iowa can be found at the huckablog. Granzow, Eichorn, Clute and Hartsuch will be joined on the campaign trail by the Governor.
Have a good Sunday
