A big, big story from Tom Beaumont yesterday, confirming the buzz out of Iowa that former four-term Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad may try to reclaim the big house on Terrace Hill.
It may not clear the GOP field, but there is little doubt where the smart money (and actual money) would go in next year's primary.
A Branstad bid would also prompt a fascinating situation with regard to the GOP's White House contenders: Would any of the hopefuls endorse and/or raise money for the popular former governor in a primary, with the hope that, should he win the general, he might return the favor in the presidential caucuses?
Keep in mind that Mike Huckabee has already endorsed his close friend Bob Vander Plaats, one of the many Republicans already running for governor.
