Former MT Gov. Says He Can Connect with Iowa Voters

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer isn't saying if he'll run for president in 2016. But if he does, he thinks he can connect with Iowa voters.
Schweitzer, a Democrat who served as governor from 2005 through early 2013, visited Iowa on Wednesday. He spoke in front of about 100 people at an event hosted by a liberal advocacy group.
Schweitzer talked about his investments in education and efforts to reduce the prison population in Montana. He also criticized the Iraq War, noting that he had not supported it.
Iowa is expected to be the leadoff nominating caucuses ahead of the 2016 presidential election.
The popular, outspoken ex-governor has been mentioned as a possible candidate, but he told The Associated Press in an interview this week he hasn't made any decisions.
