Young previously had announced he would run for the Senate seat in 2014, but on January 2, 2014, announced he would instead run for the seat left vacant by 3rd District incumbent Tom Latham, who chose not to seek re-election in 2014.
“For Republicans to have a clear shot at winning that Senate race, we need to avoid a convention, and me moving to Iowa 3 narrows that field and puts us closer to that goal,” Young said in early January 2014.
The Republican nomination will be decided by a convention after none of the six candidates reached the 35 percent threshold required to make the general election ballot.
