It appears Iowa Secretary of State Matt Schultz is looking to make a move to Washington, D.C.

The Republican made a post on his Facebook page Thursday, hinting at a run for higher office in 2014.

“I have received a lot of support and encouragement as I have considered becoming a candidate for Iowa`s 3rd congressional district. Next week, I will be making an important and exciting announcement about this race and my future plans to fight for Iowa,” posted Schultz.

The 3rd district is being left open by Representative Tom Latham, who is retiring.

Channel 13 has confirmed Republican David Young will seek Latham’s seat as well. Young is a former staffer for Sen. Chuck Grassley.
