Branstad and Culver push economic growth

WATERLOO (KWWL)--Both gubernatorial candidates, Terry Branstad and Governor Chet Culver are focusing on their plans to boost the economy.

Since 2008, Iowa has lost more than 53,000 jobs. Despite their plans, experts say governors have limited power to create jobs. They say governors often overstate their power when it comes to job creation.

Spokesmen for both Republican Branstand and Democrat Culver, say governors can influence policies that create conditions for economic growth.
