      On Wednesday, November 17, South Dakota State Representative Steve Haugaard officially announced that he will be running for Governor.

      “Kristi Noem has been beholden to special interests, from the NCAA, to big business, to corporate lobbyists. We need leadership that focuses on serving the needs of our people, not using the office as a stepping-stone.”

      See the highlights below.

      “We need a full-time governor who puts South Dakotans first. Period. Kristi Noem has been beholden to special interests, from the NCAA, to big business, to corporate lobbyists. We need leadership that focuses on serving the needs of our people, not using the office as a stepping-stone,” said Haugaard.

      Haugaard was elected to the South Dakota House of Representatives in 2014 and reelected in 2016, 2018, and 2020. He was elected by the members of the House to serve as Speaker Pro Tempore in 2018, and then was chosen to serve as Speaker of the House in 2019 and 2020.

      He has held over 25 positions in the House, including chairman of many committees within the South Dakota Legislature.

      In his announcement, Haugaard drew specific attention to this conservative streak as a legislator, specifically highlighting Governor Noem’s veto of HB 1217 last session, which would have prevented transgender students from partaking in sports opposite of the one they were born as. Haugaard co-sponsored the bill.
