PIERRE, S.D. (AP) — Five South Dakotans vying for the Republican nomination for U.S. Senate took shots at each other and the president in their first debate.

They met Saturday in Pierre at the convention of state newspaper editors.

All five generally agreed “Obamacare” should be repealed or limited, the federal government should shrink, congressional Republicans should not have allowed the government shutdown and the country needs foreign and energy policies that support domestic sources of energy and U.S. allies.

Seeking the GOP nomination are former Governor Mike Rounds, state Senator Larry Rhoden of Union Center, state Representative Stace Nelson of Fulton, Yankton attorney and Army Reserves Major Jason Ravnsborg, and Sioux Falls physician Annette Bosworth.

The June 3rd primary winner joins Democrat Rick Weiland and independent Larry Pressler on the November ballot.
