David Ray "Dave" Nagle (born April 15, 1943) was a Representative in the United States House of Representatives, representing Iowa's 3rd congressional district from 1987 to 1993. Nagle is a member of the Democratic Party.

While Nagle was in Congress, Iowa had six seats in the House. At the time the 3rd congressional district covered a portion of eastern and central Iowa. Following the 1990 census, re-apportionment reduced Iowa's representation from six seats down to five. The redistricting plan approved combined the 3rd congressional district and what was 2nd congressional district into one district. In the 1992 election, Dave Nagle ran against and was defeated by fellow incumbent Jim Nussle.

He attempted to run for US Senate, but withdrew after his arrest. [1]

Nagle is now an attorney in Cedar Falls.

Nagle received his undergraduate degree from the University of Northern Iowa and his law degree from the University of Iowa. He has been an adjunct law professor at the University of Northern Iowa.
