Matt Schultz to run for Madison County attorney

DES MOINES (AP) — Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz is a candidate for Madison County attorney in November.

The county auditor’s office confirmed that Schultz is on the ballot as the Republican candidate running against current County Attorney Julie Forsyth, a Democrat.

Schultz decided not to run for a second term as secretary of state. Instead he launched a campaign for Iowa’s 3rd District congressional seat but the Republican Party chose David Young from the field of six candidates in June.

The Des Moines Register quotes Schultz as saying he’s had a lot of encouragement to run for county attorney.

Schultz’s biography on the secretary’s website says he’s a graduate of the Law School at Creighton University and practiced law in Council Bluffs before being elected secretary of state in 2010.
