The leader of an effort to get a downtown casino in Cedar Rapids is hosting a campaign fundraiser for Gov. Terry Branstad Tuesday night.
Businessman Steve Gray, who is leading Cedar Rapids Development LLC, the group that has announced plans to seek a gambling license for an $80 million casino development, is hosting the fundraiser at his Indian Hills Road home.
The fact that he’s raising money doesn’t mean he and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds are running for a sixth term in 2014, Branstad said.
“We’re keeping our options open,” Branstad said, but noted the money raised will go to his campaign committee.
Do you think Branstad will seek re-election in 2014?
