Iowa 2012 updates: Cain staffs up, Romney leads cash contest

Loebsack makes his move

U.S. Rep. Dave Loebsack (D-Mount Vernon) has said since the state’s redistricting results were finalized that he would move in order to seek reelection. He recently made it official when he and his wife, Terry, closed on residence in east Iowa City. Although the couple could have located anywhere within the newly drawn 2nd Congressional District, they chose Iowa City due to its proximity to family.

Cain staffs up, opens state headquarters

The 2012 presidential campaign for Atlanta businessman Herman Cain announced four Iowa staff members Tuesday as well as plans for a grand opening of his Iowa headquarters.

Staff members are Larry Tuel, who will serve as state director, and field staffers Lisa Lockwood, Zach Dalluge and Steven Hensler. The team’s new headquarters, located at 8550 New York Ave. in Urbandale, will host a grand opening Monday, July 11, at 5:30 p.m.

Romney leads the cash contest

The presidential campaign for former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney announced Wednesday morning that it has raised $18.25 million in primary contest receipts for the 2nd quarter (ending June 30). The campaign says that he has $12.6 million cash-on-hand.

IDP web ad launch

The Iowa Democratic Party has released a video attacking former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty’s economic policies in Minnesota. The video features Minnesotans discussing what’s happened to them economically as a result of Pawlenty’s leadership and budget priorities.

Pawlenty’s 2nd ad, staff add

The Pawlenty team announced that the daughter of former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, and a key member of the Huckabee team that found 2008 victory in the Iowa caucuses, has joined their campaign as a senior political adviser. Sarah Huckabee Sanders will serve in the team’s Iowa headquarters and focus on grassroots outreach and the upcoming Ames Straw Poll.

The campaign also launched its second Iowa television ad, continuing to focus on the campaign’s current slogan of “results not rhetoric.” This offering, which makes good use of the phrase “Pawlenty won,” provides insights into a mid-2000s transit strike in Minnesota and budget battles.

Watch it:

Pawlenty is back in Iowa Wednesday and Thursday with events in Clear Lake, Ames and Urbandale.

From Gingrich to Perry

Craig Schoenfeld, who formerly worked as Iowa campaign director for former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, has been hired to lead the efforts of a group of Iowans who want to see Texas Gov. Rick Perry enter the race.

The return of the Pauls

U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, will return to Iowa late this month to advocate for limited government and, of course, to campaign on behalf of his father, Texas Republican Congressman Ron Paul. Full details of “Rand Paul’s Iowa Tea Party Tour” have not yet been announced.

The elder Paul is hosting meet-and-greet events today in Marshalltown and Cedar Falls. On Monday, July 11, he will host an additional event at the Best Western Starlite Inn in Fort Dodge. (Details on candidate visits can always be found on the Factbook calendar.)
