LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- At least four candidates have announced plans to run for a seat representing south-central Lincoln in the Nebraska Legislature.

Jennifer Carter announced her candidacy Wednesday for the District 29 seat currently held by Sen. Kate Bolz, of Lincoln. Bolz can't seek re-election in 2020 due to term limits.

Another candidate, Eliot Bostar, announced his intention to run last week. Jacob Campbell, a business owner and former child abuse investigator, announced last month.

Carter works as the legal counsel for the Legislature's Health and Human Services Committee. She also worked as a consultant for the Food Bank of the Heartland and the Food Bank of Lincoln.

Bostar is the executive director of the Nebraska Conservation Voters and Conservation Nebraska and a member of the Lincoln Electric System's board of directors.

Neal Clayburn has also announced his candidacy for the office.

Clayburn is on the executive board of the Boy Scouts of America Cornhusker Council and served in the U.S. Navy.
