DES MOINES, Iowa -- Gov. Terry Branstad sort of has a different style of governing. He does a lot more things on his own, such as closing the juvenile homes, vetoing the school funding bill and the recent privatization of Medicaid.

Doug Gross, a staffer of Branstad and former governor nominee himself, says Branstad just wants to get things done.

But he says that there’s a residual impact, and that you pay a price if you just surprise Iowans.

Polk County Democratic Chairman Tom Henderson says that Iowan’s can’t trust him, and he mentions specifically Branstad’s school funding veto.

But what specifically need to get done before time runs out?

Watch the entire segment above to see what Gross and Henderson say needs to happen before time runs out.
