"I am not a politician;" Rep. Stace Nelson's message on campaign trail

Posted:

Representative Stace Nelson (R-District 19) is using time off from the legislature to gain support for his U.S. Senate campaign.


Nelson spoke to members of the Pennington County Republican Women's group during their monthly meeting in Rapid City. 

He asked the group to support him as the Republican candidate for U.S. Senate because he says he is not a career politician. "We need to have people getting back into public office that are the same cloth as our founding fathers," said Nelson. "That aren't going there for personal gain; going there to actually serve. We need someone, like me, to get to D.C. and serve South Dakotans, not special interest groups."
 
Mike Rounds, former South Dakota governor, Annette Bosworth, a physician, and Senator Larry Rhoden (R-District 29) are Nelson's competitors for the Republican nomination.
 
Rick Weiland is the only confirmed candidate for the Democratic Party. 

The current South Dakota Senator is Tim Johnson. He is retiring.
