Northey To Announce 2014 Election Plans Saturday
(Des Moines)-- Iowa Secretary of Agriculture and Spirit Lake native Bill Northey will reveal his 2014 election plans at a Saturday fundraiser.
Northey says in a news release he'll make the announcement at an annual fundraiser at the Iowa State Fairgrounds.
Northey announced in May that he would not seek Iowa's open U.S. Senate seat next year, citing his preference to remain in his current role. He was one of several top-tier Iowa Republicans who decline to run for the seat after Democratic Senator Tom Harkin announced he would not seek a sixth term.
Northey is currently serving his second term as Agriculture Secretary. He was first elected in 2006.
