Iowa Dem Gov Candidate Launches In Field w/ Scant Supporters But Plenty Of Animal Crap

Iowa State Senator Jack Hatch announced his quixotic bid to challenge sitting Governor Terry Branstad yesterday in a field replete with animal crap, but missing human supporters.

Des Moines Register Political Columnist Kathy Obradavich is on the scene where she has documented an “empty field” and quoted a top campaign aide bemoaning the “animal s***” at the announcement.

Quote of day from campaign aide John Hedgecoth: Oh, we have animal $&€£ at our announcement?
