Independent candidate for District 16 Senate Brian Burge talks about his campaign

BERESFORD, S.D.(WNAX)- The District 16 Senate race will feature three candidates on the ballot, incumbent republican Senator Jim Bolin of Canton, democrat Donn Larson of Hudson and independent Brian Burge of Beresford. He says he is running to call attention to the issues in the district and state.

Burge says he is running as an independent to stand apart from the two main parties.

Burge says he got mixed messages from the parties.

District 16 was redrawn since the census and lost most of Union County but picked up areas of Clay and Turner Counties.
