Statement on Matt Schultz Joining Race for Congress
DES MOINES – Today, Iowa Democratic Party chair Scott Brennan issued the following statement on Secretary of State Matt Schultz joining the race for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District.
“Matt Schultz is a Tea Party darling who has wasted tens of thousands of taxpayers’ dollars during his time as Secretary of State, and has little to show for it. Consistent with his efforts to suppress voters and intimidate Iowans, Schultz is now eager to bring his ‘spend more, do less’ approach of governing to the halls of Congress. One thing is clear: Schultz has his eyes on a spot in the Ted Cruz Caucus. Whether it’s violating state nepotism laws and hiring his brother, or his secretive attempts to purge voter registration, Matt Schultz is more of an ethics investigation in waiting than a serious congressional candidate.”
