Senator From SD Says He Welcomes New Colleagues

November 3, 2010, 3:31 PM

SIOUX FALLS, SD - U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson says the results of Tuesday's election show that Americans want leadership in Washington that will focus on the economy and keeping the nation moving forward.

The South Dakota Democrat says he welcomes the many new colleagues he'll have in Congress next session, and he looks forward to working with "folks from both sides of the aisle."  Some of the Democratic Party's heaviest hitters went down in the House on Tuesday. The shocking upsets included three powerful committee chairmen and a host of others who were ousted at their peak of influence.

Among the Democratic casualties was South Dakota incumbent Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin. Johnson says he wishes her well, and he congratulates the Republican winner of the race, Kristi Noem.

Johnson says it's time to put politics "on the back burner" and focus on good policy.
