Braindead hints at 2014 run

Ugh.

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad has begun sending strong signals that he will seek re-election in 2014, while no Democrats have yet stepped forward to challenge him.

Potential challengers include former Gov. Chet Culver, whom Branstad, a former governor himself, defeated in a comeback two years ago.

Both Culver and Branstad say they are keeping their options open, but the Republican governor acknowledged he has taken steps consistent with launching another campaign.

1. No Culver

Personally, I didn't think he was all that much of a Governor. A guy I'd like to see (unlikely) is Bruce Braley. But then again, I'd also like to see him as Senator Braley.
