DES MOINES, Iowa — Republican Gov. Terry Branstad's new press secretary is a longtime registered Democrat who supported Colorado Sen. Gary Hart for President.
Dick Vohs' political affiliation should not prevent him from serving as spokesman for the first-term governor, Branstad aides said Tuesday. Vohs, 35, said his affiliation "didn't really seem to bother the governor, and it didn't seem to bother me. I've been more of a person person than a party man."
