Johnson and his volunteers met up at their campaign headquarters on Omaha Street and then headed out, knocking on doors and setting up signs across the city.

The latest poll shows Johnson 23 points ahead of his opponent, former Democratic Judge Tim Bjorkman. Johnson said that despite the numbers, he’s going to keep pushing.

“I mean, the voters decide who wins this race, not the polls,” said Johnson. “We’ve got to keep hustling. We have to run through the tape, because on Election Day, the voters get to decide.”

Johnson also urged people of all political affiliations to read up on the issues, and then get out and vote.

Bjorkman will be in Rapid City on Nov. 2 at Fork Real Community Cafe to meet with voters.
