Incumbents Face Incumbents In Two SD Senate Races

Incumbents Face Incumbents In Two SD Senate Races

When South Dakota Democrats eye state Senate races this fall, they see the seat held by Republican Sen. Chuck Jones of Flandreau as an opportunity for a pickup.

Jones was appointed and hasn't run a campaign. Challenger Rep. Scott Parsley is finishing his first term. The Democrat from Madison has run in two state elections.

Parsley says he'll work hard in what will be a competitive race. He views the Senate seat as open, because Jones wasn't elected.

Jones says he considers every seat open at election time. He says his business, military and municipal experience qualify him for the job.

Jones was appointed by the governor in 2013 to replace Sen. Russell Olson.

Republican Rep. Brock Greenfield also hopes to switch chambers. He'll challenge seated Democratic Sen. Chuck Welke.
