Johnson in DC preparing for stint in Congress

Republican Dusty Johnson easily won election to the US House here in South Dakota last week.
That means the next stop is Capitol Hill.
It's orientation week in Washington for new members of Congress.
And Johnson is there learning the ropes.

Johnson is taking over Kristi Noem's spot in the House after winning the election last week.
Johnson has a wish-list of committee assignments in hopes of pushing his South Dakota agenda.
He wants on the Agriculture Committee in hopes of passing the farm bill if it doesn't happen during this Congress.

Johnson says, "If it doesn't get done here during the Lame Duck, it's got to get done early in 2019. I want to be a leader in delivering that for South Dakota. In South Dakota, people spoke loud and clear that they like conservative governance, they believe in limited government, and they want to make sure that they've got a voice."

Johnson officially takes over for Noem the first week of January.
