DES MOINES -- Iowa Agriculture Secretary Bill Northey has filed petitions and paperwork to seek reelection to a post he has held since 2007.

Northey said Wednesday he collected nearly three times the number of signatures needed to appear on the ballot this fall.

Northey is a Spirit Lake farmer who has said he had been encouraged by several Republican leaders to seek the post.

Northey says he loves being Secretary of Agriculture and is looking forward to the campaign.

Northey says his priorities are the opportunities in renewable energy, conservation, and telling the story of Iowa agriculture.
