Republican candidate for Iowa’s 3rd Congressional District, Monte Shaw, admits there a lot of undecided voters in the state, which could result in an extended campaign.

The 41-year-old says he hopes to take 35-percent, the winning percentage of Tuesday’s primary, but has suspicions the six man race may be too close to declare a winner tonight.

“We’ve known for a long time that there were several candidates running credible campaigns and that there was always a chance for this to go to convention.”

Shaw says he hopes to finish in the top tier of the primary placing him a high position to be elected in front of more than 500 delegates at convention.

“I really think my assets as a the most electable republicans and the one who has worked with the delegates for 20 years to elect other republicans will actually make the front runner in the convention.”
