Democrat Jack Hatch first got elected to public office nearly three decades ago.

Monday, the Des Moines state senator said he will travel the state to introduce himself to Iowans as he kicks off his campaign for governor.

“And so yes, I do have to introduce myself to more Iowans. That’s why we’re going to six cities today and over the next three days we’re going to hit 25 cities. We’re going to hit county after county after county. We’re going to introduce ourselves and I want Iowans to know that I’m not just a Des Moines politician, I’m a politician that cares about Iowa,” says Hatch.

At least two other Democrats are vying for the Democratic nomination to run against Republican Gov. Terry Branstad.

Representative Tyler Olson of Cedar Rapids has already announced he’s in the race.

Former representative Bob Krause is in the exploratory stage, but has told Channel 13 he’s running.
