Slow to the Stick
Nussle was the Delaware County prosecuter before running for Congress. While many assumed that he would have a strong base of support in Eastern Iowa, he only outpaced Chet Culver in 2 of the 12 Eastern Iowa counties he had represented. Nussle still has loyal supporters within the party, which could help Rudy establish a grassroots organization.
This accentuates exactly what we at the Cooler have been telling you from the start. Rudy's going to run and he's going to run in Iowa.
