Bosworth Officially Announces Run For U.S. Senate

plankinton, sd

The third Republican candidate vying for South Dakota's U.S. Senate seat in 2014 officially made her announcement Tuesday afternoon.

Dr. Annette Bosworth has talked about her interest in running for the United State Senate since last month. And on Tuesday, at her family farm in Plankinton, she made it official.

Bosworth will now take on former governor Mike Rounds and state senator Larry Rhoden for the Republican nomination. Rick Weiland is the only Democrat in the race, so far.

41-year-old Bosworth paints herself as a Generation Xer, who can go to Washington DC, make policy changes and bring a fresh look on things. She considers herself a pioneer, just like her forefathers who settled on her family farm in Plankinton, South Dakota.
