At least one republican has decided against a run for Governor in 2006. Representative Danny Carroll from Grinnell says he will not seek the Republican nomination. He says he doesn’t have any plans to run for any higher office at this point. Carroll had been mulling a run for the state’s top executive job since last summer. Republicans are hoping to win back the office, as Democrat Governor Tom Vilsack has said he won’t run for a third term. Carroll says there are plenty of other good republican candidates who’ll seek the nomination. He says, “Congressman Nussle, Doug Gross and Bob Vanderplaats have pretty much taken up all the space on that playing field for now, and I’ve kinda got my hands full where I’m at.” Carroll is in his sixth term as a state legislator and represents residents in parts of Poweshiek and Mahaska counties.
