The legislative session that starts Tuesday might feature more than the usual amount of political posturing.
Two state lawmakers are seeking the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate, and a few are looking at running for other statewide offices.
All 105 legislative seats are up for election this fall, and Gov. Dennis Daugaard is expected to seek a second term as governor.
Sen. Larry Rhoden, of Union Center, and Rep. Stave Nelson, of Fulton, are running for the GOP Senate nomination against former Gov. Mike Rounds and two other candidates.
Sen. Shantel Krebs, of Renner, says she's seeking the Republican nomination for secretary of state.
Legislative leaders wonder whether some of speeches in committees and floor debates could be even more political in this election year.
