South Dakota Democrats have nominated Matt McGovern and Nick Nemec to run for seats on the state commission that regulates utilities.
Delegates to the Democratic State Convention voted unanimously to nominate McGovern and Nemec.
McGovern is a Sioux Falls lawyer and grandson of former South Dakota U.S. Sen. George McGovern. He will run for a full six-year term. The incumbent commissioner is Republican Kristie Fiegen.
Nemec is a farmer from Holabird and a member of the Democratic National Committee. He is running for a four-year term against incumbent Republican Chris Nelson.
The Democratic candidates say they want to improve bonding for grain warehouses because farmers lost millions of dollars after selling sunflowers to a failed seed company in Redfield.
