Democrats May Give Up On SD Senate Seat

Democrats May Give Up On SD Senate Seat

Democrats, at least on the national level, are preparing to give up on the Senate seat in South Dakota.  That’s the view of James Hohman, a writer for Politico, a Washington D.C.-based website.  Former Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin announced this week that she would not run for the position.  US Attorney Brendan Johnson has also not shown any interest in making the race.  Current Republican Congresswoman Kristi Noem is a potential candidate for the Senate too, but Hohman says he doubts she will run.  Hohman says no matter how the candidates shake out, the South Dakota Senate race will get national attention.  Rick Weiland announced his intention last week to seek the Democratic nomination.
