Making it official

Former Governor Terry Branstad, a Republican, has chosen Tuesday, January 19, 2010 as the date on which he will “formally” declare he’s running for governor again. Branstad plans to visit 17 cities that week, starting with Des Moines.  The news release from his campaign only lists the cities, not the time or place of each event.  The latest “corrected” news release is below (the first did not list Mason City as one of the stops).

(URBANDALE) – The Governor Branstad 2010 Committee today via Twitter released the dates of Gov. Branstad’s upcoming announcement tour, and the 17 cities he will visit during the swing.

“This tour is just the beginning,” said Gov. Terry Branstad. “I plan to visit all 99 counties, just as I did as governor. I look forward to meeting with Iowans as we discuss my positive vision for leading Iowa’s comeback.”

The tour will begin in Des Moines on Tuesday, Jan. 19, 2010 and wraps up on Friday, January 22, 2010.

The cities are as follows, in alphabetical order:
