Name: Nate Boulton, Democrat

Office/District: State Senate District 16

Hometown: Des Moines

Profession: Attorney

Why running for office: “It has been an honor to serve in the Iowa Senate and represent my constituents in Des Moines and Pleasant Hill at the Capitol. While I’m proud of what I have been able to do in the Iowa Senate over the past four years, there are so many important issues and ideas that still need to be accomplished. There is so much more we must do to better prepare our state for the future.

“Working people in Iowa need a strong advocate–someone who can stand up with them and for them. Someone who can work across the aisle and do so without compromising on core beliefs. I’ve worked to be that advocate throughout my first term and look forward to continuing that work in the years to come.”
