Brian Bengs talks about one of his platform for running for the U.S. Senate

ABERDEEN, S.D.(WNAX)- Democrat Brian Bengs is working to get his US Senate campaign off the ground.

He says he will run on a simple theme.

Bengs says democracy is being undercut around the country.

Bengs says he sees the damaging effect money has on the political process.

Bengs says the “Citizens United” decision, which allow corporations to donate to political candidates and causes, is one of the reasons for the political fallout.

Bengs is the only democrat in the race, while incumbent republican Senator John Thune will face two challengers, Bruce Whalen and Mark Mowry, in the GOP primary.
