Sioux Falls Physician To Enter US Senate Race

Sioux Falls Physician To Enter US Senate Race

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — A Sioux Falls physician is joining the race for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate.

Annette Bosworth says she decided to run for the nomination after visiting people in 23 counties in South Dakota during the past month and a half. The 41-year-old Bosworth joins former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds and State Sen. Larry Rhoden in the race for the GOP nomination following news that Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson will not seek re-election.

Bosworth, who does not have any political experience, says the people of South Dakota are looking for someone who will go to Washington and get the job done and then return home. She says South Dakotans do not want a career politician.

Bosworth will formally announce her candidacy Tuesday in Plankinton.
