Bump in Behn’s roll-out?

State Senator Jerry Behn (R-Boone) made it official today, announcing his campaign for the GOP's 2010 gubernatorial nomination in a series of one-on-one interviews with statehouse reporters.  I've covered Behn at a series of candidate forums over the past few months (in Sac City in June to Dallas County in August) and Behn has never suggested getting rid of the state's income taxes as Behn did late this morning when he sat down with Kathie Obradovich and Jason Clayworth from The Des Moines Register.

Unfortunately, Behn forgot to mention his get-rid-of-state-income-taxes idea during his half-hour discussion with reporters from Radio Iowa and The Cedar Rapids Gazette. Nor did Behn bring that up during his interview with WHO-TV or during his interview with IowaPolitics.com.
