J.D. Scholten is a former professional baseball player and Iowa native. After college, J.D. pursued a career in professional baseball and pitched for a total of four seasons across seven different countries. Between seasons, J.D. worked as a litigation paralegal specializing in Electronic discovery and Intellectual Property law. He is most proud of his work protecting a Minnesota company’s Intellectual Property rights against a giant Canadian corporation.
J.D. is rejecting all corporate PAC money in his campaign, because he knows that special interests have drowned out the voices of Iowan families in Washington. In Congress, he will fight for their interests and work hard to pass meaningful campaign finance reforms.
