From the article:
Five-term Gov. Terry Branstad has picked up a challenger in the June 3 Republican primary.
Tom Hoefling, 53, of Lohrville collected enough signatures to qualify for the ballot, the Iowa Secretary of States office confirmed today.
Hoeflings candidacy vs. Branstad, 67, represents a David vs. Goliath race to the extreme....
Hoefling calls himself an anti-establishment outsider who spent the last six years as an independent voter. According to his website, his GOP unity platform is based on the belief that its the first duty of every government officer to equally protect each individuals God-given rights.
The platform also underscores his belief in one man-one woman marriage and the right to bear arms.
