Ahlers running for Senate because of lack of action in Congress

DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (WNAX) – Former legislator Dan Ahlers of Dell Rapids is the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate in South Dakota this year. He will face incumbent Republican Senator Mike Rounds in November.

Ahlers says the lack of action in Congress pulled him into the race.

Ahlers says he was able to find a way to get bills moving when he was in the legislature.

Ahlers says he thinks most people agree on the basic issues.

Ahlers says it will be difficult to run a traditional campaign in the middle of a pandemic and will rely on social media to get his message out.
