SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota congressional candidate Dusty Johnson has outraised his two Republican primary opponents and has a big banked cash advantage as the June election nears.
Federal campaign finance reports filed this week show Johnson, a former public utilities commissioner, raised about $70,000 from April 1 through May 16, and he ended the period with more than $300,000 in the bank. Secretary of State Shantel Krebs followed with about $224,000 on hand after raising about $40,000.
State Sen. Neal Tapio raised nearly $56,000 — almost all from a personal loan — and heads to the election with $37,000 banked.
The June 5 Republican primary winner is set to face Democrat Tim Bjorkman, a former judge, and Libertarian George Hendrickson and independent Ronald Wieczorek in the November general election.
