Branstad to DC Wednesday for GOP summit

POLITICO is reporting Governor-elect Terry Branstad is one of 15 “new” Republican governors who’ll be attending an event Wednesday in D.C.  Branstad, as you may recall, just won a fifth term as governor after serving four terms from January, 1982 to January, 1999.  The event on December 1, 2010 in D.C. is billed as a summit “to talk about spending cuts and jobs,”   (UPDATE:  The New York Times suggests the event is on Wednesday of next week.  When asked via email if Branstad would be attending the event in D.C. on Wednesday, Branstad spokesman Tim Albrecht said yes.  I didn’t ask which Wednesday, however.  The statement on Boehner’s website lists December 1 as the date for the meet-up, so it is this week.)

Here’s another Branstad story, about the $10,000 budget for the transition of power.
