Democrat announces bid for U-S House
News Staff - April 17, 2017

RAPID CITY, S.D. - A democratic candidate is throwing his hat in the ring for a run at South Dakota’s lone US House seat in Congress.

Chris Martian is a Rapid City resident. He announced his candidacy last week.

Martian has never held public office. That fresh perspective to politics is why he says he’s qualified to hold the seat…

“We’ve fallen into this cycle where we elect the same people, we get our information from them and we just sort of follow along and I think we’ve forgotten that they work for us. They should be giving us information and we should be coming up with our own opinions independently and then communicating back and for with them. And I don’t think that’s been happening. I don’t think that’s happened in a long time.”
 
Martian is the only Democrat so far to announce their run for Congress in 2018.

On the Republican side, Secretary of State Shantel Krebs and former chief of staff to Governor Dennis Daugaard, Dusty Johnson, have announced their candidacy.

Late last year Congresswoman Kristi Noem announced she’s running for governor in 2018.
