DEMOCRAT’S DISS: Calls Governor “Mean Spirited”
Former State Representative Bob Krause has been exploring a Democratic run for governor for nearly all of 2013 and can’t say when he will enter the race. But Krause, a Des Moines defense contractor, had something to say about longtime Republican Governor Terry Branstad. Krause said, “Recently, especially, and throughout his regime, he has been quite mean-spirited to the poor and lower-middle class.”
Krause said Branstad vetoed raising the earned income tax credit during the legislative session. He praised the governor for his work during the 1993 floods but said Branstad has run out of ideas.
