Senator Mike Rounds receiving support from both sides of the aisle following passing of Jean Rounds

WASHINGTON, D.C.(WNAX)- South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds is back in Washington, attempting to pick up his duties in the Senate following the death of his wife Jean early last month.

Rounds says having his wife’s cancer fight out in public actually helped.

Rounds says he wants to thanks those from South Dakota and across the country that reached out to him and his family.

Rounds says his fellow Senators have been very supportive.

He says President Biden also reached out to him with a very nice phone call when Jean passed away.
