Cross Bob Vander Plaats off the list as possibilities for Iowa Republican candidate for governor, Terry Branstad’s list. Vander Plaats, who insiders told me really didn’t have much of a chance to get on the ticket, just sent out this through his former spokesman:

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bob Vander Plaats will make his first public comments about the 2010 gubernatorial campaign since Primary Night on Friday, June 25, when he appears on the Steve Deace Show from 5:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m.

Vander Plaats will be at the WHO Radio studios, 2141 Grand Avenue, Des Moines, for the live interview.

First public comments on Friday, huh? Since the picks gets to travel statewide with Branstad Thursday, we know he won’t be the pick.
