District 19 incumbents Peterson, Schoenfish advance to November election

Incumbents Kent Peterson and Kyle Schoenfish will be moving on to November's general election after winning the Republican House nomination for District 19 in Tuesday's primary.

Incumbents Kent Peterson and Kyle Schoenfish will be moving on to November’s general election after winning the Republican House nomination for District 19 in Tuesday’s primary. Peterson, with 1,649 votes, and Schoenfish, with 1,983 votes, won the two available spots in Tuesday’s primary over ReGina Osborn, who received 490 votes. The two will be vying for the two open house seats with Democrat Ardon Wek in the November general election to serve the five-county district. Schoenfish is an accountant working in Parkson but lives in Scotland. He has served in the South Dakota Legislature for two terms. Peterson, one-term legislator, farms north of Salem with his father and brother.
Peterson, 36, said Tuesday he was pleased with the results and the campaign and is already looking forward for the general election. In preparation for November, Peterson said he will continue to “get out and talk to people” in the communities. “I’ll continue to work with people and get a good feeling with what’s going on in our district,” Peterson said. Some of his priorities if he wins in November is to continue to find ways to grow the South Dakota economy and the development in rural areas. Peterson said he’d also like to find ways and opportunities to bring “young people” back to the South Dakota. Schoenfish, 28, is also looking forward to the general election after taking home the highest number of votes in Tuesday’s primary. [[{"type":"media","view_mode":"media_large","fid":"2588103","attributes":{"alt":"","class":"media-image","height":"345","title":"","typeof":"foaf:Image","width":"225"}}]] With more than four months to go before general election, Schoenfish said he will continue to reach out to his constituents. “I’ll keep doing what I’m doing, going door to door and keeping myself accessible,” Schoenfish said. “I encourage people to contact me.” Education, especially in smaller schools, will remain one of his top priorities if he wins in November.
