Senate Candidate Mike Rounds
U.S. Senate candidate and former Governor Mike Rounds is one of five Republicans running to replace retiring Democratic U.S. Senator Tim Johnson. Rounds served as Governor from 2003-2011 after a decade in the South Dakota Senate. In his current campaign Rounds says he wants to bring "South Dakota common sense" to Washington, D.C. He says Congress is broken and needs to regain the discipline to get budgets and farm bills done on time so business owners have some predictability. He also wants to scale back regulations to get the economy moving again.
