Culver warming up

Iowa Gov. Chet Culver spent some time Sunday in the Pepsi Center practicing for his convention speech on Tuesday. The governor said he did a practice speech and “walk through” for the appearance he is slated to make at about 3 p.m. Mountain time. “It went very well,” he said in preparing for his five-minute address. The governor said he bought to new ties but hasn’t decided which he will wear for the occasion.
