PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - State Rep. Stace Nelson says he's submitted more than 2,650 signatures to the South Dakota Secretary of State's office to get on the ballot as a Republican candidate for Senate.
    
The Secretary of State must verify 1,950 of the nominating petition signatures for Nelson to qualify for a position on the primary ballot.
    
Also running for the GOP are former Governor Mike Rounds, Sioux Falls physician Annette Bosworth, state Sen. Larry Rhoden of Union Center and Yankton attorney and Army Reserves major Jason Ravnsborg.
    
Rick Weiland is the unopposed Democratic candidate. Former Republican U.S. Senator Larry Pressler is running as an independent candidate.
    
The Republican primary will be held on Tuesday, June 3.
