Former Republican Governor Mike Rounds officially announced his candidacy today for the United States Senate.
“I am here today to ask the people of South Dakota for their support and to allow me to work for them as their United States Senator in 2014,” stated Rounds.
“Fourteen years from now, in 2026, the United States of America will celebrate its 250th birthday...the United States of America that exists in 2026 will be created by all the decisions that are made between now and then,” said Rounds “We have to make the right decisions.”
“During this campaign, I’m going to do a lot of listening, a lot of studying, and a lot of discussing with the people of South Dakota,” said Rounds “I’m going to listen to their ideas and opinions on what the federal government should and should not do.”
Rounds was sworn-in as South Dakota’s 31st governor on January 7, 2003, and was re-elected to a second term in 2006. Throughout both terms as Governor, Rounds was steadfast in his commitment to growing South Dakota’s economy, improving the daily lives of South Dakota citizens, and providing opportunities for young people to stay in South Dakota.
After serving as Governor, Rounds returned to the private sector to work as the President and CEO of Fischer, Rounds and Associates, a successful insurance and real estate business with offices in Pierre, Rapid City, Watertown, Mitchell, and Sioux Falls.
From 1991 to 2000, Rounds served five terms in the South Dakota State Senate. In 1995, he was chosen by his peers to serve as Senate Majority Leader, a post he held for six years.
Rounds and his wife Jean reside in Fort Pierre. They have four children and five grandchildren.
