Dr. Bosworth Considering Run For U.S. Senate

June 10, 2013, 4:31 PM by Ben Dunsmoor

Dr. Bosworth Considering Run For U.S. Senate

Sioux Falls Doctor Annette Bosworth says she is considering a run for U.S. Senate.

In an interview with KELOLAND News Monday afternoon, Bosworth said that she will make a decision in the next month on challenging former Governor Mike Rounds for the Republican nomination.

Bosworth calls Rounds a ‘career politician’ and believes she can be a true citizen lawmaker for the state of South Dakota.

“Does South Dakota want a career politician? I want to be able to give them a choice,” Bosworth said.

The Sioux Falls physician took at trip to Washington D.C. last week to explore a possible run but says she now wants to tour the state and talk with South Dakotans before making a final decision.

Bosworth says one of her mentors in considering a run has been Oklahoma Senator Tom Coburn, who is also a physician and opposed the Affordable Care Act known as Obamacare. Bosworth says that her career in the medical field will give her a unique perspective in Washington with the implementation of the new health care law.

In the past six months, Bosworth has been in the news as she fought to keep her medical license following a reprimand from the South Dakota Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners. The board accused her of not following the conditions of the reprimand for employing an unlicensed physician assistant without the proper supervision agreement.

Earlier this year Bosworth also settled a Medicaid dispute with the state in February but did not admit to any wrongdoing. The Sioux Falls doctor says those experiences will make her battle tested as she considers a run for U.S. Senate.

Hear more from our interview with Bosworth coming up tonight on KELOLAND News at 6 and 10.
