Daugaard-Backed Candidates Face SD Primary Foes

Daugaard-Backed Candidates Face SD Primary Foes

Voters across South Dakota are deciding 30 primary contests in state legislative races.

Five races have grabbed particular attention because Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard endorsed candidates in GOP Senate primaries.

Daugaard angered many conservative Republican lawmakers when he endorsed candidates they consider too liberal.

The governor endorsed House Speaker Val Rausch of Big Stone City in a Senate primary against Sen. Tim Begalka of Clear Lake, and he backed Sen. Deb Peters of Hartford over Rep. Lora Hubbel of Sioux Falls.

In western South Dakota Senate races, Daugaard endorsed Sen. Bruce Rampelberg of Rapid City over challenger George Ferebee of Hill City, Sen. Tom Nelson of Lead against Lawrence County Commissioner Bob Ewing of Spearfish, and former lawmaker Mike Buckingham of Rapid City over Rep. Phil Jensen of Rapid City.
