Retired Army officer says she'll take on Noem for US House seat
SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A retired Army officer who served in Iraq says she plans to seek the Democratic nomination for South Dakota's lone seat in the U.S. House.
Forty-eight-year-old Corinna Robinson tells the Argus Leader that she plans to make a formal announcement in the next few weeks about running for the seat now held by Republican Rep. Kristi Noem.
Robinson says she recently resigned as director of the anti-terrorism and force protection directorate at the Pentagon Force Protection Agency so she could run for Congress. She says she was prompted to run in part because of a dysfunctional Congress.
Robinson grew up in Rapid City and joined the Army when she was 17. She retired as a major after 25 years, spending most of her career in the military police.
