Tim Albrecht recently resigned his post at Governor Branstad’s office to become the new Director for Redwave Digital. Recent polls show Albrecht’s former employer as having a 58 percent approval rating by voters but think Branstad has been in government long enough.
Albrecht said that the approval rating of Iowa’s leader is certainly better than those of President Obama and that means Branstad is doing something right. So while many a Democrat might be willing to sacrifice their political career in 2014 to face off against Branstad, they will likely lose.
In light of Congressman Tom Latham’s recent announcement of his plans to retire, Albrecht said he believes Latham will be sorely missed.
