Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., is not seeking reelection. Several candidates are running for the Republican nomination; on the Democrat side, only Rick Weiland, a former aide to Tom Daschle, has formally announced a candidacy.

“I believe it is essential and of paramount importance that South Dakota maintains a strong presence in the United States Senate,” Volesky said in a news release.

Volesky, a lawyer in Huron, served 16 years in the South Dakota Legislature.
