COUNCIL BLUFFS — Iowa Gov. Chet Culver bounced onto the stage here Sunday night, exhibiting the excitement he said he saw in the 70 or so faces in the crowd. “There’s no enthusiasm gap in Council Bluffs, that’s for sure,” he said.

'Culver has fought for Iowa and Cedar Rapids'
We wanted to share the letter to the editor from Governor Culver's aunt, Kay Baty, that appeared in the Cedar Rapids Gazette on Oct. 29: Culver has fought for Iowa and Cedar Rapids Admittedly, I am not an unbiased observer when it comes to Gov. Chet Culver. My brother, John Culver, is his father. In addition, Chet spent many of his boyhood days playing here in Cedar Rapids with my two sons.I’m writing because as a lifelong resident of Cedar Rapids, I am absolutely appalled that The Gazette chose not to endorse Chet for a second term. I don’t see how any person could have done more for our city’s and this area’s flood recovery than he has.Could Terry Branstad have brought in more than $1 billion to Linn County? Would he have taken the time to come to Cedar Rapids more than 100 times to help this city overcome its worst natural disaster in history?I seem to recall that very little was done by the Branstad administration to help victims after
Statement from Governor Chet Culver
DES MOINES – Governor Chet Culver issued the following statement tonight: "I congratulate Governor Branstad on his victory tonight. I want to thank Lt. Governor Judge, my family, my campaign staff, my Governor's Office staff, and all the other Iowans who have given us so much support and encouragement over the last four years. We've tried to look to the interests of the next generation, not just the next election, in positioning Iowa for a great future."
Governor Culver Continues to Get the Job Done
Thanks to state investment under Democrats, Dubuque now is top city in America DES MOINES – Forbes Magazine came out with their latest rankings on the best small cities to raise a family, and topping the list was Dubuque.  They found that it is large enough to have a thriving business environment, yet small enough to not be overcrowded. Under Governor Chet Culver, the state worked with local leaders and officials at IBM to bring the multi-national technology company to Duqubue.  Thanks to the Iowa Values Fund, our successful public-private partnership, we were able to bring 1,300 good-paying, technology jobs. “My administration has worked hard to bring new jobs and new opportunities to communities large and small all across Iowa, and no place highlights the success of our efforts more than Dubuque,” said Governor Culver.  “We brought 1,300 jobs to this community with IBM.  And thr
Terry Branstad's 'New Day' a Dark One for Iowa
DES MOINES – Terry Branstad told supporters in Sioux City today that his candidacy represents a "new day." A new day for what? “Terry Branstad's candidacy would represent a new day, all right,” said Culver/Judge Campaign Manager Donn Stanley. “A new day without preschool or health care for thousands of our children. A new day for tax cuts for out-of-state corporations and more taxes on the middle class. A new day without life-saving embryonic stem cell research. A new day without renewable energy research. And a new day with the same tired old ideas from the last century.” Terry Branstad has promised to cut preschool for 22,000 4-year olds. He has promised to cut health care for 30,000 children. He has promised to put the ban on embryonic stem cell research back in place and he has promised to eliminate the Iowa Power Fund. Branstad has also promised to cut corporate taxes, placing
