IA: Branstad would crush Culver (GOP Pickup)

With news that former Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad (R) may seek his old job again, a new Hill Research poll shows he’s the only GOP candidate who could actually beat current Gov. Chet Culver (D) in next year’s election.

Branstand would crush Culver, 52% to 37%, but Culver handily beats every other potential GOP candidate tested.

According to the Des Moines Register, party leaders are predicting Branstad will run.
