Congresswoman Kristi Noem has announced that she plans to seek re-election to the US House in 2014. There had been speculation that Noem may run for Senator Tim Johnson’s seat in next year’s election. Johnson announced he is retiring after thirty years in the Senate. In her announcement, Noem thanked everyone who encouraged her and pledged support for a potential Senate campaign. She also said she and her family spent the weekend discussing their future, and they decided Noem is in the best position to serve South Dakota as a member of the US House. She also said she will work hard to help elect a South Dakota Republican to the US Senate next year. Former South Dakota Governor Mike Rounds and former Tom Daschle staffer Rick Weiland have announced their candidacies for the US Senate in 2014.
