For Immediate Release
Tuesday, January 7, 2014

Council Bluffs, Iowa-Jake Porter, a Libertarian candidate for Iowa Secretary of State, has released the following statement on the possibility of Matt Schultz dropping out of the Secretary of State race to run for Congress:

“Congress is a great office for Matt to run for.  As I pointed out last election, Schultz wanted to focus on job creation, immigration, and other legislative policy and the Secretary of State’s office has no Constitutional responsibility or budget to focus on those things. Unlike the Secretary of State’s office, which is an administrative position, Congress is where Schultz can actually focus on the legislative issues that are near and dear to him.”

Porter, was the 2010 Libertarian nominee for Secretary of State. In 2010, Porter received 33,854 votes in the general election, covering the margin of Republican Matt Schultz’s victory over Democrat Michael Mauro.

Porter earned his Bachelors Degree in Business Administration from AIB College of Business in Des Moines. After college, Porter moved to Nebraska where he worked as a retail store manager. Today, Porter lives in Council Bluffs and handles customer care issues for a large Internet corporation in Omaha.
