Jack Hatch

An Iowa Democrat has taken the first step toward a run for governor in 2014.

Friday state Senator Jack Hatch of Des Moines announced he has formed an exploratory committee for a gubernatorial run. Hatch had previously expressed interest in running for the state’s highest office.

Governor Branstad has not said whether or not he will run again, however Friday evening his campaign committee sent out an e-mail asking for donations in response to Hatch’s filing.
