Republican all-stars have spread across the state, including behind-the-scenes advisor Mary Matalin.Bush lost Iowa to Al Gore by about four-thousand votes in 2000. Matalin says she’s here to “gin up the troops” on the Republican side, as there are Republican Caucuses tonight where local, neighborhood leaders will be chosen and Matalin says those folks are valuable troops in the G-O-P plan for November. Matalin says she’s not here to say anything about the Democrats, but during a Radio Iowa interview the chairman of the Republican National Committee said the Democratic presidential candidates had “poisoned the well” and when Matalin heard that, she had more to say. Matalin says the Democrats “have been nothing but negative” and she says that will “ricochet back on them” in the general election match-up against President Bush. Matalin says the Democratic candidates have been saying “ridiculous” things about the President. Matalin says Bush is the “transformational president” as he’s transformed the military and the economy has rebounded.
