GOVERNOR RACE: Candidates ‘Laying The Groundwork’

branstad reynolds 2014

With Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds putting the governor’s recent speeding incident down to a busy schedule, the duo can expect an even busier agenda ahead.

The Branstad-Reynolds campaign released an image Monday with the caption, “we’re laying the groundwork for 2014.”

The Branstad campaign has also hired four people to work on his reelection effort.

The campaign says it currently has $2-million on hand.

Branstad’s eventual opponent could be Cedar Rapids Representative Tyler Olson.

Olson will make what his staff says is an “important campaign announcement,” Tuesday as part of three events in Cedar Rapids, Des Moines, and Mason City.

The Des Moines event begins at 12:45 p.m. at the State Capitol.
