Herseth Sandlin Decides Not To Run For Office In 2014

Former Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth Sandlin has decided that she will not seek the Democratic nomination for Tim Johnson’s Senate seat in 2014.  Herseth Sandlin posted on her Facebook page this morning that after careful contemplation, she and her family have concluded that the future should continue to focus on plans they laid last year at this time.  She said the decision not to run is the right decision for her family.  She also said there is no way of knowing if there will be another opportunity to serve South Dakota in elective office, but she is grateful for the opportunity she had in an earlier and different stage of her life.
