    I think that a good campaign just might bring out the independent and moderate Republican voters who are sick of the freak show of Republican elected officials who hold office in the State. I think bringing up the optics of corruption when one of the Republican elected representative of the Joint Finance Committee vetoed the Cedar Bluffs acquisition paid for from State Stewardship funds so that some developer make some money building houses and selling them to rich people.
