Branstad to announce Gubernatorial run today

DES MOINES (KWWL) -- Former Gov. Terry Branstad will formally announce Tuesday that he'll again seek the Republican nomination for Governor.

Branstad will start in Des Moines, then make his announcement in 17 cities throughout Iowa.

He faces primary competition from Sioux City businessman Bob Vander Plaats, and State Reps. Chris Rants and Rod Roberts.

Democratic Gov. Chet Culver has not formally announced his plans, but has made clear he'll seek a second term.

Branstad served four terms as Governor before leaving office in 1998.
