RAPID CITY, SD -
Former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds says he's considering a bid for the U.S. Senate in 2014.
Rounds says he likes working in private business, but the former two-term Republican governor says he's giving "serious thought" to running for the seat held by Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson.
The 57-year-old Rounds says he's not interested in the U.S. House seat held by first-term Republican Rep. Kristi Noem.
The former chief of staff for Rounds, Sioux Falls businessman Rob Skjonsberg, has reserved two Internet domain sites for a possible campaign: ROUNDSFORSENATE.com and
Rounds is a partner in the Fischer Rounds & Associate real estate and insurance firm based in Pierre.
