Northey eyes Terrace Hill keys

The Sioux City Journal has a story up now reporting that Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey is considering a run for governor.

DES MOINES n Iowa Secretary of Agriculture Bill Northey said Friday that he’s weighing a possible run for governor in 2010.

Northey, speaking on a taping of Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press,” said he hasn’t made up his mind about throwing his hat in the ring for the Republican nomination to challenge Gov. Chet Culver, the Democratic incumbent.

“I’m keeping the door open to running, but I’m very happy with what I’m doing,” he said.

Northey was elected in 2006, a tough year for Republican candidates during which Culver claimed the governorship and Democrats took majorities in both houses of the Legislature.
