Gross not running for Gov.


DES MOINES, Iowa -- The Republican race for governor will be without Doug Gross.

The Des Moines attorney, who ran unsuccessfully against Gov. Tom Vilsack in 2002, told The Associated Press Monday that he is not going to run because it would be too big a strain on his family.

I'm glad. I'm by no means a Vilsack fan, but there's just something about that guy that bugs.
