King GOP bid less likely, Roberts gets Eastern Iowa mention

Writing in The Cedar Rapids Gazette James Lynch reports on U.S. Rep. Steve King's comments today that he's not revved up to run for governor.

Lynch also gives Carroll's own Rod Roberts a mention as possible candidate for governor.

Here is The Gazette:

The Kiron conservative said on Iowa Public Television’s Iowa Press that a gubernatorial campaign is not uppermost in his mind. The program will air Friday night and Sunday forenoon.

“I don’t go to bed at night thinking about it nor getting up in the morning thinking about it,” the fourth-term congressman said.

King’s name is one of a handful mentioned as GOP nominee for governor. Others include Reps. Rod. Roberts of Carroll and Christopher Rants of Sioux City, state Auditor David Vaudt and Ag Secretary Bill Northey, but Bob Vander Plaats of Sioux City is the only one with an active campaign at this time.
