Branstad Announces Hires for Potential Campaign

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) --
   Gov. Terry Branstad says he has cash on hand and staff in place for a potential re-election run in 2014.
   Branstad announced Monday that he has $2 million in his campaign account and has made several campaign hires. The Republican governor has not formally announced if he will seek a sixth term in 2014.
   Branstad's campaign committee has hired former staffer Jake Ketzner to serve as campaign manager. Ketzner ran Rep. Steve King's 2012 campaign.
   Also joining Branstad's political team are staffer Jimmy Centers, who will be communications director, and Phil Valenziano, a staffer for Mitt Romney's presidential campaign, who will serve as political director.
   On the Democratic side, Des Moines Sen. Jack Hatch is exploring a run and state Rep. Tyler Olson, of Cedar Rapids, is considering a bid.
