Argus follows with story on Dusty Johnson planning run for Congress

After my post, the Argus Leader came out with a story of their own on former PUC Chairman and Daugaard Chief of Staff Dusty Johnson’s plan to run for the congressional seat that Kristi Noem is going to be leaving in her own bid for Governor:

“I’m certainly planning to run,” Johnson, 40, told Argus Leader Media Wednesday. “And the reality is that people have been asking me how they can contribute and to be able to accept those contributions I need to file the paperwork.”

The former chief of staff to Gov. Dennis Daugaard said he doesn’t plan to launch his campaign right away, but wanted to be straightforward about his intentions.

And if you are interested in donating to the campaign, I believe you can do so here.

    Hell yes. Dusty is a bright, capable guy who is considered in his actions. I’ll probably work for his campaign, if he’d have me.
