Youngest Female SD Representative Looks To Senate

Youngest Female SD Representative Looks To Senate

One of the youngest females ever elected to the South Dakota Legislature hopes to move to the Senate after two terms in the House.

Rep. Jenna Haggar is running to fill a seat vacated by Sen. Shantel Krebs. Haggar will face one competitor, a Democrat, in the general election.

The Sioux Falls Republican didn't think she had a good chance of winning when she first ran for office four years ago. She was 24, homeschooled and without a college degree. She was also conservative running against incumbent Democrats.

She did win. And her father, Rep. Don Haggar, followed her into politics. They serve in the current session together.

Her marketing business, Vashti Media, is under a year old. And Haggar championed successful human trafficking and anti-abortion bills this session.
