Ahlers says running campaign during pandemic a challenge

DELL RAPIDS, S.D. (WNAX) – Mounting a statewide campaign in the face of a pandemic is a challenge.

Dan Ahlers of Dell Rapids is the Democratic candidate for the Senate and will face Republican incumbent Senator Mike Rounds in November.

Ahlers says he has had some time to adjust.

Ahlers says he was able to make some personal contacts before the pandemic shutdown.

Ahlers says getting his message out effectively is also a challenge.

Ahlers is a former legislator and interim director of the Dell Rapids Chamber of Commerce.
