Congressman Dusty Johnson’s Weekly Column: Dear Santa

Dear Santa

By Rep. Dusty Johnson

Dear Santa,

2020 was a hard year for all of us, and as I’m sure you know, the world continues to battle a global pandemic. It’s not been all bad though, and what can only be called a Christmas Miracle, our healthcare workers are beginning to receive a lifesaving vaccine. Americans have buckled down, and we’ve done our best to make the Nice List – I hope you’ll keep my Christmas list in mind as you’re making the rounds this year.

All I want for Christmas is…

  1. All of our healthcare workers, senior citizens, and those most vulnerable to receive the COVID-19 vaccine.
  2. Relief for hurting small businesses, schools, and families.
  3. Passage of the PRICE Act for our cattle producers.
  4. To stop surprise medical billing for Americans. Hopefully this happens in an end of year spending bill!
  5. Good weather for our farmers and ranchers.
  6. A functional Congress.
  7. Peace and comfort to those that have lost loved ones in 2020.

Now Santa, I know these are hefty requests, but if anyone can make the impossible happen during the holiday season, it’s you.

Merry Christmas!


Congressional Candidate Disclosures being filed with the Clerk of the US House.

Congressional Candidate Financial Disclosure reports are starting to trickle in from the candidates actively pursing South Dakota’s Congressional seat being vacated by Congresswoman Kristi Noem, as she looks towards the Governorship of the state of South Dakota.

Former PUC Commissioner & Republican Candidate Dusty Johnson’s report provides the most information, and also makes very clear the fact that his wife is part of a financial advising firm:

We have to wait for Secretary of State Shantel Krebs’ report, as she has taken a momentary bye, and asked for a 30 day extension at the time of her filing due date. So we won’t know where her report sits for at least another couple of weeks:

Our foul-mouthed Democrat friend Chris Martian who is running for Congress has his report in… for what it’s worth. For lack of a better term, It’s what we might call a “Chad Haber-ian” campaign finance report, with no reported income or assets.

Stay Tuned for more.
