David Blount (born July 19, 1967) is a Democratic member of the Mississippi Senate, representing the 29th District since 2008. His present term of office will end in 2020.

Prior to being a state senator, he was employed at the office of the Secretary of State of Mississippi. (Eric Clark was then the Secretary of State.) In 2007, he defeated two other Democratic opponents to win the Democratic nomination for Senate seat #29 in Hinds County. He went on to defeat the incumbent senator, Richard White. Blount was re-elected in 2011 with 69 percent of the vote over a Republican opponent, and again in 2015 with 79 percent of the vote.
