Dusty Johnson wins South Dakota House Seat


The Associated Press - November 7, 2018

PIERRE, S.D. - Republican Dusty Johnson has beaten Democrat Tim Bjorkman to win South Dakota's U.S. House seat.

Johnson was the favorite throughout the race. The former public utilities commissioner and past gubernatorial chief of staff ran an energetic and well-funded campaign as a traditional conservative.

Johnson says he will work hard to get on the House Committee on Agriculture and get a finished farm bill. Johnson says the people of South Dakota have hired him, and he's "not going to disappoint them."

Johnson focused during the race on fiscal discipline, proposing changes such as increasing the age for Medicare and Social Security eligibility for younger people. He will replace Republican Rep. Kristi Noem.

Bjorkman, a former judge, had pledged not to take special interest donations and said health care is the nation's most pressing problem.
