Council Bluffs, Iowa – August 5, 2010 – Council Bluffs City Councilman Matt Schultz gained some momentum today in his quest to be Iowa’s next Secretary of State when polling numbers were released showing him 3 points ahead of the Democrat Incumbent.

“These numbers are encouraging, but it won’t change what I’m doing.  I have always campaigned as if I am 20 points behind, and I won’t stop working hard.”

The poll commissioned by TheIowaRepublican and Concordia Group LLC shows Schultz leading Mauro 33% to 30% with 35% undecided.

The poll was conducted by Voter Consumer Research, a highly respected polling firm based in Washington D.C. All interviews were conducted live via telephone between July 25th and July 28th. The general election poll has a sample size of 500, and a margin of error of 4.39%.

“This campaign is about real issues and what’s right and wrong.  My opponent supports giving felons the right to vote and is against requiring a photo ID when we vote at the polls.  While voter fraud continues to threaten the security of our elections, Mauro is more interested in protecting his salary.  Iowans want leadership and are tired of career politicians who are out of touch,” Schultz said.

Matt Schultz is a Council Bluffs City Councilman and is married with three children.
