If nominated, he will run.
That’s the word from Sioux City businessman Rick Bertrand on his possible entry back into the District 7 Iowa Senate Race.
Bertrand completed eight years in the senate this year, and previously announced he would not seek re-election.
Earlier this month, Republican Steven Stokes ended his campaign for the seat leaving only Democrat Jackie Smith on ballot.
Woodbury County Republican leaders will hold a special convention Tuesday night to nominate a candidate.
Bertrand tells KCAU9 that after hearing from party leaders, his family has given him their blessing to seek re-election should he be nominated.
