"I would expect some of the people who seem to be running for the various offices at this point to think better of it at the beginning of the spring if their support and especially their funding support don't show up."
Just days ago, Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz announced his intentions to run for Iowa's 3rd Congressional District, more candidates are likely to announce soon. On the Democratic side, Staci Appel has announce she's running for the third.
It was also learned last week that Iowa Department of Public Health Director, Mariannette Miller-Meeks resigned, as she's exploring a run for Iowa's 2nd Congressional District.
