Rounds Running for Senate in 2014

It's official: Former South Dakota Gov. Mike Rounds is running for Senate in 2014.

"I am here today to ask the people of South Dakota for their support and to allow me to work for them as their United States Senator in 2014," the former Republican governor said in a statement, per the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.

He's on a 3-city tour of the state today, and had been expected to enter the race. Rounds announced he would form an exploratory committee back in September. You can check out his Rounds for Senate website here.

Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson has not formally announced whether he'll run for reelection, but seemed to inch closer to doing so in a statement welcoming Johnson to the race.

"As in past campaigns, I will make my formal announcement later next year," said Johnson. "But I feel great, still have work to do, and I fully intend to put together a winning campaign in the weeks and months ahead. In the meantime, I intend to continue to focus on my important work representing South Dakota."
