Meet the Candidates

The people of South Dakota deserve to know what the candidates for the legislature stand for,  and this is an opportunity to hear directly from the candidates across the state. We asked each candidate for the state senate and house the same three questions: What would you like other South Dakotans to know about your district and constituency? Discuss major issue or topic you want the Legislature to address? What legislation or solution will you bring forward to deal with it?

The answers vary just like the issues across the state.  Excerpts from each interview will air on Dakota Midday starting August 8 through October.
