Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz announced Thursday in Council Bluffs he intends to run for Congress.
Schultz, a Republican, is running for Tom Latham's 3rd Congressional District seat. Schultz once served on the Bluffs’ City Council and was elected secretary of state in 2010.
Schultz has pushed for a state voter ID law and has put a focus on fighting voter fraud. He has also come under scrutiny over whether his use of federal money for voter fraud investigations is proper.
