State Rep. Mark Mick­el­son (R), “the Sioux Falls law­maker who has been con­sidered a fa­vor­ite to be the state’s next gov­ernor, says he has de­cided not to run for the job when it’s open in 2018. Mick­el­son, 50, had raised about $1 mil­lion for a cam­paign against po­ten­tial GOP primary rivals.”

Rep. Kristi Noem (R) “said she was giv­ing a run for gov­ernor ‘ser­i­ous con­sid­er­a­tion,’ while [state] At­tor­ney Gen­er­al Marty Jackley (R) said he was ‘pre­par­ing to run.’” (Sioux Falls Ar­gus Lead­er)

Gov. Den­nis Daugaard (R) is term-lim­ited in 2018.
