import mysql.connector

# connect to server
mydb = mysql.connector.connect(
    host="localhost",
    port=3306,
    user="yourusername",
    password="yourpassword",
    db="mydatabase"
)

# get a cursor
mycursor = mydb.cursor()

sql = "INSERT INTO US_STATE (State_name, Abbreviation, Capital, Total_area) VALUES (%s, %s, %s, %s)"
add_vals = [
    ('Alaska', 'AK', 'Juneau', 665384),

# execute a query
mycursor.executemany(sql, add_vals)
