Culver exploring a rematch

Chet Culver is thinking rematch for 2014;

CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - Ready for a rematch?

Former Iowa Gov. Chet Culver is considering another run for the state's top office, challenging Republican Gov. Terry Branstad in 2014.

"I'm certainly keeping my options open," the one-term Democrat said recently.

Some Iowa Republicans were quick to express doubt the former high school teacher will run in 2014, but Branstad spokesman Tim Albrecht said the possibility is one "we take very seriously."

Culver, 46, believes he had a great record of accomplishment from 2007-11 and is receiving encouragement to run again.


I would rather get a hard, pipe hittin liberal in the Governor's office. But Chet would be way better than Brainded!

1. Give me a break

He phoned in the last election and let that idiot back into office. I would prefer to see someone like Braley go for it and lose than have Culver back. It might have been the year for a Democrat to lose, but you got to go down will all guns blazing.

2. yeah, I was rather underwhelmed by his performance.

He is going to have to up his game significantly if he wants another shot at it.

3. Braley would make a great governor, but

he's been such a great congressman. We had Nussle for so long, it's so good to actually be represented again.

Plus, and this is a big thing, I think he is the ideal replacement when Harkin retires.
