Angie Buhl is the youngest legislator ever!

This is such incredible news. Congratulations Angie -- and congratulations to District 15 for choosing a fine new state senator-elect!

And many thanks are due to Sen. Miles for her years of service - I know we don't agree but I have a great deal of appreciation for anyone that is willing to serve in the Legislature -- it can be a thankless office and the pay is pretty minimal.

Dear Friends,

As you know, Tuesday was a victorious night for us. With your help, we were able to defeat 8 year incumbent Kathy Miles by a solid 59-41 margin. We also made history. You helped send the youngest woman ever elected to the South Dakota state legislature to Pierre next January.

This happened because of you. And I thank you for it!

We learned what we all already knew to be true: that District 15 wants representation that's about our people, not the politics it has seen in the past. With the help of so many friends and family, supporters, and donors, we were able to give that voice back to District 15. We should be very proud and celebrate this significant victory!

But our work is never over. While I don't have a challenger in the November general election, we need to make sure we all step up to help other candidates who do. As we learned with this race, when we all come together, we can do great things. Let's work together to continue to make South Dakota a better place while spreading our message of people, not politics.

Thank you for your support and enjoy this victory -- it's yours!

  1. "help other candidates" -- maybe Buhl can be our next McGovern and really kick the state Democratic Party into gear. She has a long career ahead. Forward!
