"The road to the Republican majority in the U.S. Senate runs through South Dakota. My friend Mike Rounds is a strong, common-sense conservative.

Huckabee. “Mike’s stance on Obamacare, Keystone, 2nd amendment rights, life and our military stands in stark contrast to his opponents. It’s critical that South Dakota voters understand the consequences of this race. I’m honored to be in South Dakota and support Mike as the next Senator from South Dakota.”
The Rally for Rounds will take place in the Rushmore Room at the Sioux Falls Best Western Plus Ramkota Hotel beginning promptly at noon and is open to the public.
