SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — Former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds has won the Republican party nomination for the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by retiring Democrat Tim Johnson.
Rounds needed thirty-five percent of the vote to avoid a runoff. He received over 55 percent of the vote. He will face Democrat Rick Weiland and Independent candidates Larry Pressler and Gordon Howie in November.

State Rep. Susan Wismer has won the Democratic bid for South Dakota governor. Wismer makes history as South Dakota’s first female gubernatorial candidate. In November, she will face current Governor Dennis Daugaard, who won the Republican gubernatorial primary yesterday. Former USD professor Mike Myers is also running for South Dakota governor.
