Meet the candidates: District 12 voters to seat new Senator, at least one new House member
Term limits have Sen. Blake Curd and Rep. Arch Beal ineligible to seek re-election to their respective District 12 seats.
And with just one incumbent lawmaker running for re-election in the legislative district and Curd opting not to run for a spot in the House, District 12 voters will have some new representation in Pierre come January.
The Dakota Scout sent a series of questions to all legislative candidates in the Sioux Falls and surrounding area who are running contested for state House and Senate in the Nov. 8 election. Candidates were asked to limit their responses to each question to 100 words or less.
