Congressional challenger announces run during Black Hills Stock Show
RAPID CITY, S.D. — Liz Marty May announced her intentions to run for the United States Congress against Republican Representative Dusty Johnson during the Black Hills Stock Show.
May is a rancher, businesswoman and fourth generation South Dakotan, which she believes makes her the best candidate as she can relate to the largely agricultural South Dakota community. She also considers herself a staunch conservative and wants to bring true conservative values back to Washington, and hopes her campaign will welcome a new generation of voters.
“I think that we need to work at educating our young people, just like I had to be educated as a 5th grader on the prairies of Perkins County in a one room school house, of the importance of people being able to express themselves freely. And so that’s something that I’m going to be focusing on,” said May.
May has six years of experience as a state legislator for District 27, and believes she can provide a fresh perspective, especially in regards to the agricultural committee.
