Thune is running hard after another term, and the GOP is cheering!!!
“Sen. John Thune, the number No. 2 Senate Republican, announced Saturday he would seek re-election in 2022, positioning himself as the likely successor to GOP Leader Mitch McConnell,” reports Fox News.
“Thune, 61, had considered retiring from the Senate, but amid public pressure from McConnell and other GOP leaders, the South Dakota Republican said he’d seek a fourth term in office,” according to Fox News.
“I’ve always promised that I would do the work, even when it was hard, uncomfortable, or unpopular,” Thune said.
“That work continues, which is why after careful consideration and prayer, and with the support of my family, I’m asking South Dakotans for the opportunity to continue serving them in the U.S. Senate,” Thune continued.
