(SD)-Former Demo State Lawmaker Announces U-S Senate Bid
DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (AP) - A Dell Rapids businessman and former Democratic state lawmaker is running for U.S. Senate in South Dakota.
45-year old Dan Ahlers has filed paperwork with the Federal Election Commission for the seat held by Republican Mike Rounds and Ahlers plans to formally announce his candidacy on Monday in Dell Rapids.
Ahlers served 2 split terms in the South Dakota House of Representatives in 2007 and 2017, and two years in the State Senate in 2009-10. He says in a statement that politicians in Washington are more concerned about winning election than "getting the work of the people done."
Rounds, who served 2 terms as governor before going to the Senate, hasn't yet announced whether he'll seek re-election. State Representative Scyller Borglum of Rapid City has already announced she's in the Republican primary whether Rounds is running for reelection or not.
