Mike Glover of the Associated Press is retiring. His last day with the AP is this Friday, April 27, 2012. Governor Terry Branstad holds a weekly news conference and he said a few words about Glover on Monday. AUDIO of the exchange features Branstad’s comment about Glover’s traditional “perch” for the news conference on the credenza, as you can see in the photo. ”Mike actually goes back to the pre-cell phone era, if you know what I mean,” Branstad said, laughing. “So do I.”
This morning the House passed a resolution honoring Glover. AUDIO of the remarks in the House.
