Krause Ends Bid For Governor

DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) -- Democratic candidate for governor Jack Hatch has been endorsed by a former lawmaker who was considering seeking the office.
   Former legislator Bob Krause announced Thursday he would end his exploratory Democratic bid for governor. He says he will support Hatch, a Des Moines state senator, in the 2014 race.
   Krause says a competitive and expensive Democratic primary could make it harder for the victor to compete in the general election. Hatch says Krause's backing will help him build a winning coalition.
   Gov. Terry Branstad hasn't announced his plans, but he is expected to run for re-election.
   Krause says he will not leave the political arena. He plans to run as a Democrat in the 2016 race for U.S. Senate. Republican Sen. Charles Grassley has said he will seek another term.
