The Branstad Committee announced they would begin to gather volunteers for Gov. Terry Branstad, R-IA, campaign on Tuesday.

A Facebook page, and Twitter account have already been created.

His staffers are starting the campaign even though their candidate has not officially announced he wants to run.

Jimmy Centers, Branstad's campaign communications director, said the reason for the early start is to build up the campaign to compete with Democrats.

"The 2012 election cycle taught us that laying the ground work early, and building the base of support, and organizing can yield great dividends in the long run," said Centers.

Branstad and Lt. Gov. Kim Reynolds will formally announce their decision some time in early 2014, according to Centers.
