The Iowa Republican: Republican secretary of state primary looms

Excerpted from this post at The Iowa Republican

Up and down the ballot, Republicans have favorable matchups in next
fall's general elections. The top of Republican ballot will feature
U.S. Senator Chuck Grassley and a gubernatorial candidate who will
emerge from a hard fought primary to face the unpopular and weak
incumbent governor, Chet Culver. While the gubernatorial primary
captures the most attention across the state, Republicans will have
healthy primaries in a number of races. Three-way primaries are likely
in Iowa's first and second congressional districts. Another race which
could have a three candidate primary is the Republican primary for
Secretary of State. Currently two candidates have been traveling to
events around the state. Council Bluffs City Councilman Matt Schultz
announced his candidacy a couple of weeks ago, and former State
Representative George Eichhorn is set to formally announce his
candidacy later today.
