Iowa Independent: Meyers to run as independent in 4th district

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Independent

William Meyers, a former Marine who came in third out of four
candidates Tuesday in the Democratic 4th Congressional District
primary, will run as an Independent this fall against Democrat Becky
Greenwald and Republican incumbent Tom Latham. Meyers said he began
gathering the 300 signatures he needed to get his name on the ballot
for the general election before the primary took place. "We already
have the signatures we need, and we're just waiting for the filing
period to begin to file them," Meyers said in an interview with the
Iowa Independent. "There is still time for the [Democratic] Party to
talk me out of it, but I don't think that's likely."
