May announces intentions to run for Congressional seat

RAPID CITY, S.D. (WNAX) – It appears that South Dakota republicans will have a primary race for the state’s lone Congressional seat.

Former legislator Liz May of Kyle announced her intentions at the Black Hills Stock Show last week. She says the state needs better representation.

Incumbent Congressman Dusty Johnson has not officially announced he will run for reelection but has been raising money for several months.

May says she has had a lot of encouragement.

May says she can run and not split the party.

Johnson is in his first term in Congress. May served two terms in the state House but was defeated last year.
