SocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

The Iowa Secretary of State's Office received an objection March 23 to the nomination petition of Sen. Joe Seng, D-Davenport, to run for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives. The objection was contained in an email forwarded by Johnson County Auditor Tom Slockett.

Seng filed to run as a Democratic opponent to Rep. Dave Loebsack, D- Iowa, representing Iowa's 2nd Congressional District in the U.S. House. Loebsack is serving his third term in the House.

Representatives of the Offices of the Attorney General and the State Auditor will set a hearing this morning to decide if the objection will be passed.

Seng declined to comment on the objection.
