Tax Time is Decision Time for Baseball Player-Turned-Candidate J.D. Scholten
DES MOINES, Iowa -- J.D. Scholten faces a taxing deadline. Democrats have been pushing the Sioux City Democrat and former professional baseball player to run for office again; two offices, actually. Scholten surprised many people in 2018 when he lost to 4th District U.S. Rep. Steve King, a Kiron Republican first elected in 2002, by just three points. King routinely wins re-election by 20 points.
