There isn’t any other way to view Herseth Sandlin’s decision to buy a home in Sioux Falls. She’s preparing to run for the Senate in 2014.
When Sioux Falls officials calculate next year how much the city grew in 2012, it?s possible that three of the city?s new faces will be former U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin and her family.
Herseth Sandlin confirmed that she and her husband, former Texas Congressman Max Sandlin, are considering a move to the city. They now split their time between Brookings, where they are residents, and Washington, D.C., where they work for lobbying firms.
Herseth Sandlin cautions us on too much speculation.
Herseth Sandlin insists a move to Sioux Falls should not be viewed through a political lens.
?I also understand that some political speculation may be inevitable, but please know that this move has been driven primarily by family-related logistics and quality-of-life factors,? she said.
Considering she didn’t spend hardly anytime in SD when she was serving as our congresswoman, it’s hard for me to believe she has any other intention for owning a home in SD. But hey, since she forgot to introduce her husband Max to South Dakota while she was representing us in Congress, maybe she will take the time to introduce him to us over the next couple years?
