One of five candidates for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate says he’s working on getting people to vote in next Tuesday’s primary election…..

 

Former Governor Mike Rounds is considered by many as the front-runner in the race for the GOP nomination and he’s drawn criticism from his Republican opponents and the Democratic candidate who already has sewn up his party’s nomination…..

Attorney Jason Ravnsborg, Dr. Annette Bosworth, State Senator Larry Rhoden, and State Representative Stace Nelson are also seeking the nomination.
