Democrats 'actively recruiting' candidates for statewide offices, chair says

Democrats have remained mum as Republican candidate campaigns in South Dakota are starting to show signs of life for the 2020 election.

No Democratic candidates have announced for either the U.S. House or U.S. Senate seats up for election next year while on the Republican side, freshman state Rep. Scyller Borglum of Rapid City has announced her intention to run against U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds in a primary.
