In his campaign for U.S. Senate, Republican Mike Rounds says voters have a very clear choice between philosophies on how government should run and which direction the nation should head in the future.
Rounds served in the state legislature before first being elected governor in 2002. Following his second term in office, he returned to his insurance and real estate business. Rounds faces Democrat Rick Weiland and independents Larry Pressler and Gordon Howie in the November 4th election to fill the seat being vacated by retiring U.S. Senator Tim Johnson.
Rounds joined Dakota Midday and outlined his positions on such issues as the Keystone XL pipeline, the Affordable Care Act, EPA regulation and U.S. foreign policy.
