Skip to comments.Matt Schultz: Look Out for the New Kid from Council Bluffs

If anyone impressed me last weekend at the Dallas County GOP straw poll and the Polk County convention, it was Secretary of State candidate Matt Schultz. The Republican primary for Secretary of State is between three candidates, Schultz, former State Rep. George Eichhorn, and newcomer Chris Sanger.
All three of the Secretary of State candidates spoke at the Dallas County event on Friday night. Eichhorn was the first to speak, and I thought he gave a great speech. He was confident, knowledgeable, and likeable. Sanger spoke so softly it was almost a whisper, but despite his soft voice, his full beard makes quite a statement. Sangers main campaign position is do away with the signature requirements to get ones name placed on the ballot. Thats ironic since he was the first candidate to turn in his signatures.
Schultz shined last Friday night and again at the Polk County Convention the next morning. In both instances, he spoke for about five minutes, yet in that short amount of time he conveyed a lot of information about himself and what he wants to do as Secretary of State. He started his speech by giving the audience some stats about how many business forms and inquiries the Secretary of States office handles. He then says that he will use the office as a bully pulpit to promote business in Iowa.

More business for Iowa ?
He might start by taking a look at its uncompetitive tax rates...
Sounds good. This is where our activism is needed. We absolutely must elect honest people (Republicans) as SOS in every state. Soros is putting big money up to elect dem SOS in every state. We have to work even harder to see that he fails or obama is assured another 4 years, giving him time to take over as the Fuhrer. I like Matt’s approach. Maybe we should can his speech and pass it around to all the Republican candidates for SOS.
