Secretary of State Shantel Krebs (R) joined the forming field of candidates for what will be an open statewide contest for South Dakota’s lone US House seat. Ms. Krebs joins former Public Utilities Commissioner Dusty Johnson in the GOP race. Incumbent Rep. Kristi Noem (R-Castlewood) is an announced candidate for Governor. The seat will remain Republican, so all the action is expected to be in the GOP primary. South Dakota does have a run-off law, so if no candidate receives at least 35% of the vote the top two finishers will advance to a secondary election.
