Branstad: Paul, Gingrich Strong In Iowa

Branstad: Paul, Gingrich Strong In Iowa

In the opinion of Republican Governor Terry Branstad of Iowa, one month away from the caucus, GOP Presidential candidate Ron Paul has the strongest organization in the State.

“Ron Paul has got probably the best organization and has a very loyal following. He’s got more yard signs and bumper stickers than anybody else,” he said. “I don’t think he’ll win, but I think he will get 15 to 18 percent. The person who wins is going to probably get 25 percent plus.”

The Iowa governor believes Newt Gingrich could win the Jan. 3 caucuses depending on his performance in the last two debates, according to POLITICO.

“The debates have had more to do with this than anything else,” he said. “I still think organization matters, and yet more people are watching the debates.”

Branstad said that he believes of the seven potential candidates, none will procure more than 30 percent of his State’s electorate.

Gingrich has not spent a great deal of time in the Iowa and he did not open his Iowa campaign headquarters until last Wednesday, but Branstad believes his voters will be those social conservatives who have not fallen in line with any one candidate.

The Iowa governor has not offered support to any of the GOP candidates in the race.
