1. Thanks to the tipster who alerted us to the fact that McCain has inked Evan "Curly" Hultman of Waterloo and Richard Goebel of Dubuque to head up the veterans for McCain group here in Iowa. Hultman was the Attorney General of Iowa and he was the state veterans chairman for BC04.
Goebel is the state commander of the VFW.
These are two of the major players in the veterans community here in Iowa. Hultman is particularly well thought of in GOP circles.
2. Here's some fun news. Duncan Hunter (R-CA) is running for President. Hunter is the Chairman of the Armed Services Committee. He's been in Congress for 26 years.
"This is going to be a long road, it's a challenging road, there's going to be some rough and tumble, but I think it's the right thing to do for our country,"
Watch out Jim Gilmore. Rep. Hunter's coming after you.
Here's a link from the South Carolina Hotline with more on Duncan Hunter.
3. Keep your eyes out for a line update with Gilmore and Hunter later this week. That's all for now.
