RAPID CITY - Kristi Noem, Republican candidate for South Dakota governor, has chosen Larry Rhoden to serve as Lieutenant Governor. Rhoden is a lifelong West River rancher.

“I am humbled to accept Kristi Noem’s offer to serve as her Lieutenant Governor,” Rhoden said. “It’s clear Kristi is fighting for something much bigger than herself, and she expects the same of those serving in her administration. We have an opportunity to do some big things without raising taxes or growing government. I’m proud to be part of the team.”

In 2001, Rhoden began serving in the state legislature. Today, Rhoden serves as the Majority Whip in the South Dakota House.

Rhoden runs a cow-calf operation and custom welding business near Union Center and still lives on the ranch where he was born and raised. He and his wife, Sandy, have four boys, two daughters-in-law, and one grandchild.
