The Register, Still Struggling to Explain Keyes vs. Kucinich

Byron York had fantastic coverage on the ground in Iowa yesterday, and notes that Alan Keyes has 49 committed supporters in Iowa. He notes it is “fuzzy” as to whether Keyes has either a campaign office in Iowa by Oct. 1, or paid staff in the state.
