DES MOINES, Iowa (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 (https://dmreg.co/1Ai3AH3 ) 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.
