In 2002, Nieves ran to replace outgoing state representatives May Scheve(D) and Francis Overschmidt(D). Nieves won a primary race against Dave Bailey, and won a general election contest against Tom Herbst. He won reelection in 2004, 2006 and 2008. His term expires in 2010. Due to term limitations, Nieves will not be legally able to run for another term in the state house, but he is eligible to serve as a state senator.
