Statement on Tom Latham’s Retirement Announcement

Des Moines – Iowa Democratic Party Chairman Scott Brennan released the following statement today on Tom Latham’s announcement to not seek reelection in 2014:

“We thank Tom Latham for his service in representing the people of Iowa in Congress.  We are excited to have an open seat in the third district, and look forward to a strong general election season.  Tom Latham is putting his own competitive district into play because the Republican agenda in the House is not working: failing to pass a farm bill, promoting a government shutdown, and voting to repeal the Affordable Care Act almost 50 times.  Iowans are ready to elect a Democrat in the third district, as Democrats look to take back the House of Representatives in 2014.”
