Iowa Ag Secretary Says Congressman Did Much For Ag, Will Be Missed

Iowa State Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey says he was surprised by the retirement announcement of Congressman Tom Latham. Latham who’s served in the house since 1995 has chosen not to run for re election in 2014. Northey says Latham did tremendous things for agriculture and the state as a whole.

Northey says he doesn’t intend to jump into the Congressional race but intends to stay on as the State’s Agriculture Secretary.

He says 2014 will be an interesting political year for Iowans who will have a lot of choices to make at the polls.

Northey says Latham did a lot for the state of Iowa, much of which were low profile accomplishments.
