Republicans Win Big in Rapid City, Black Hills

In the Rapid City area, Republicans saw wins at all levels. Besides electing Donald Trump as president and returning John Thune and Kristi Noem to the US Senate and House, the Rapid City Journal reports wins for all Republican State Senators and Representatives. Winners include the late incumbent Dan Dryden; David Lust was appointed to fill the seat after Dryden passed away, and the governor has said he would appoint Lust to fill the term if Dryden won.

The Rapid City Election Information page has been updated with the winners. Past stories from this election cycle are linked in the Black Hills Knowledge Network's online news archive.
