Eighth candidate enters race for South Dakota's U.S. Senate seat

Posted: Updated:

Former State Senator Gordon Howie announced his plans to run as an Independent for South Dakota's United States Senate seat.

He's joined by seven other candidates seeking to fill Senator Tim Johnson's seat.

Larry Pressler is also running as an Independent. Rick Weiland is the lone Democratic candidate. Five Republicans are in the race: Annette Bosworth, Stace Nelson, Jason Ravnsborg, Larry Rhoden and Mike Rounds.

Howie recently made headlines in his hometown of Rapid City. He pleaded guilty to illegally killing a mountain lion -- a misdemeanor charge. He was given a suspended 90-day jail sentence and ordered to pay a $200 fine.
