Two weeks, four polls, and one third of one percent
[I]f this race doesn’t break for either candidate, it’s going to hinge on turnout, and if a turnout advantage fails, then we can all look forward to Chet’s SOS team counting ballots on the Friday after the election.Tell your friends why Nussle/VanderPlaats make the best team to energize Iowa's future, let them know about the ways Chet Culver has failed Iowa as Secretary of State, and get them to vote.
Johnson County HQs makes the news
We already knew that we were receiving generous financial support for our headquarters from the Nussle-Vander Plaats campaign and Governor Mitt Romney's Commonwealth PAC. Today, the two campaigns announced that their contributions were part of a joint effort to open five GOP County HQs around the state. In addition to Johnson County, HQs are being supported in Dubuque, Linn, Pottawattamie, and Woodbury Counties.
Hotline On Call also picked up the story.
We are grateful for the support -- and it's good to see both organizations putting resources into these important grassroots efforts.

Republicans gather for Iowa-Iowa State Game
Republicans from around the state gathered before the Iowa-Iowa State game to show their support for Jim Nussle, Bob Vander Plaats and our other Republican candidates, while cheering on the Hawkeyes or Cyclones.
The Nussle team even had special limited-edition stickers! (They had some made in Cardinal and Gold, but I hear they weren't nearly as popular -- and you wouldn't expect me to post those colors on a Johnson County website, would you?)
Great food and drinks, pleasant weather, a fabulous location just behind the Press Box, and 100,000 of your closest friends from the state provided a good time for all.
UPDATE: Here's the Daily Iowan's coverage of the tailgate.
