As a fourth-generation South Dakotan, the values of hard work, fairness and honesty are part of who I am. It has been an honor to serve my community as a business owner, volunteer, community leader and a District 25 state legislator. I want to do everything I can to make sure our government works in the best interest of hardworking South Dakotans, not out-of-touch politicians and special interests.
That's why I'm running for the U.S. Senate. I'm excited to hit the ground running. I want to hear your thoughts and concerns in order to help you and your family.
Running to be your Democratic Senator from South Dakota won't be easy, but then again, I've never backed down from a challenge. Growing up during the recession in the early 80's, I know what it is like to go to bed hungry and wear clothes that were worn out or no longer fit. I learned the value of hard work and humility. These are the qualities that have fueled my determination to overcome the challenges I've faced as a child, student, business owner and legislator. Click this link to hear more of my story.
My wife, Amy, and I are now raising our two boys and instilling those same South Dakota values. In order to guarantee this legacy continues, I want to make certain all South Dakotans receive a quality education, affordable healthcare and can find a good job right here in South Dakota. We should never settle for anything less. Together, we can ensure that these values are represented in Washington D.C., but I need your help. In order to be successful in November, I need the funding to get out my message.
Working together we can build a better South Dakota.
