Two democrats opted out this week from running for Governor next year; State Senators Michael Gronstal of Council Bluffs and Pam Jochum of Dubuque. But, at least one other democrat is still thinking about it… State Treasurer Michael Fitzgerald.
“Over the past year I’ve had a lot of Democrats come to me and talk to me about ‘you ought to considering running, Iowans for the last 30 years have trusted you with their money, they know you stand for a balanced budget, triple A ratings for the State, financial responsibility,’” said Fitzgerald.
Fitzgerald says he hopes to decide by the end of September.
