Hunhoff moving back to Senate

YANKTON, S.D. (WNAX) – Long time legislator and current Representative Jean Hunhoff of Yankton will be moving back to the state Senate in January.

She beat Democrat Jordan Foos by a 60-40 percent margin in this week’s District 18 election.

Hunhoff says she wasn’t sure of a victory.

Hunhoff says she ran hard because of what the district and state are facing.

Hunhoff says the pandemic will shadow state and local governments through the next year.

Hunhoff has been in the legislature since 2001 and previously served in the Senate from 2007 through 2014.
