As a 5th generation Iowan, J.D. Scholten is defined by his Iowa values. All his life, as a teammate and a professional, he's been surrounded by people who put others first. He's played baseball in 7 different countries, including for his hometown Sioux City Explorers and later worked as a paralegal specializing in intellectual property law. But who he is has never changed: an Iowan, a community member and teammate with a strong work ethic and integrity. His family raised him to believe that hard work, civility and community are the values we should all aspire to, and he is committed to living those values through his campaign to beat Steve King. At 6 foot 6 he plans to "Stand Tall for All" in Congress!Meet J.D. Scholten

MY GOALS OF “STANDING TALL FOR ALL” ARE SIMPLE: Fighting for an economy that works for all of us, putting Main Street ahead of Wall Street on behalf of family farmers and working families. A health care system that is affordable and accessible for all of us to ensure that Iowans never again need to worry about healthcare as a barrier to living free, productive, and successful lives. Putting Iowa values back at the center of public service by having a government that works for us, not corporate interests and mega donors. Every stand I take in Congress will be in pursuit of these goals, and the needs of the people in Iowa’s 4th Congressional district.The Issues
The 4th Congressional District is a large sprawling scenic district covering North West and North Central Iowa. Made up of 39 counties, the district is larger than the smallest 115 congressional districts in the country. It includes Sioux City, Ames, Mason City, Fort Dodge, Boone, and Carroll. The 4th District includes many rural communities and is one of the biggest agriculture producers in the country.
