On today's update...

All three statewide incumbent candidates have survived the primary re-election. The Republicans are deeply popular in the party and staved off challenges from the right.

A Republican candidate for the South Dakota House is withdrawing his candidacy amid a challenge from his Democratic rival over his eligibility for the race.

House Republican Dusty Johnson defeated challenger Taffy Howard by nearly 60 percent of the vote. Johnson does not have a Democratic opponent for the general election—the second time in a row.

South Dakota primary voters rejected Constitutional Amendment C. The amendment would have raised the threshold for certain ballot questions that spend money or raise taxes.

A West River health-care provider is moving forward with nearly $120 million worth of construction projects. The new facilities will serve the growing Black Hills-area population.

And more.
