PIERRE, S.D. – Shantel Krebs announced Monday that she intends to run for South Dakota’s lone seat in the United States House of Representatives.
“I believe for the first time in my life, we have an opportunity to make the federal government more responsive to what we expect and deserve”, Krebs said in a press release. “Just like we do in South Dakota and just like I’ve done in my office.”
Krebs currently serves as South Dakota’s 28th Secretary of State. Prior to that she spent ten years in the legislature and held leadership roles in both the house and senate and Krebs was the first woman in the state’s history to serve as chair of the Senate Agriculture Committee.
Dusty Johnson is also in the race for South Dakota’s seat.
