    i'm not so sanguine about Branstad's chances, especially if he doesn't run.  

    His support is broad but shallow, and the Medicare fight and property tax fights are doing him no favors.  The caveat is finding the right candidate.  Corbett's sunk because of Schwartz/Sestak.  IDK who'd be a similarly strong candidate in IA or in some of the red states with unpopular GOP governors.  Iowa has a lot of good names on paper, but nobody who might be running has ever run statewide.

    An open seat, which is fairly possible, strongly favors the Democrats.  Kim Reynolds passing on the Senate race when Steve King's seemingly not running makes me think Branstad's will to run is abating.

    Difficult, difficult, lemon difficult.
