DES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — Democratic state Sen. Jack Hatch is officially getting in the 2014 race for governor.
Hatch announced Monday in Des Moines that he will seek the Democratic nomination next year. He pledged to boost the minimum wage, make college more affordable and to continue expanding access to health care.
Citing his years representing Des Moines in the state House and state Senate, Hatch said he would fight for the "little guy" if elected governor. He said he had stood up to Republican Gov. Terry Branstad to advocate for environmental safety and health care expansion.
Hatch will face Cedar Rapids state Rep. Tyler Olson in the Democratic primary. Branstad is widely expected to seek a sixth term, but has not yet announced his plans.
