Meet the candidates: Smith's candidacy for governor means at least one new face from District 15 headed to Pierre
Republicans look to knock off incumbents in Democratic stronghold
State Rep. Jamie Smith’s candidacy for governor means there’s guaranteed to be at least one new face representing Sioux Falls’ District 15 in Pierre come January.
Democrats have had the support of District 15 voters in the last two election cycles or more, and the three Republicans running in the north-central Sioux Falls district hope to unseat a pair of Democratic incumbents in addition to vying for Smith’s vacant spot.
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.
