In the four-way race to fill the U.S. Senate seat currently held by retiring Democrat Tim Johnson, Gordon Howie describes himself as the “true conservative.” The former Republican state legislator from Rapid City says he's running as an Independent candidate to provide state voters with an alternative to the Republican nominee, former Governor Mike Rounds.

The other candidates in the race for the open Senate seat are Democrat Rick Weiland and former Republican Senator Larry Pressler, who is also running as an Independent.

During a Dakota Midday conversation, Howie said the federal government needs to cut spending and reduce debt. He also discussed the role of religion in politics and the size of government.
