Chairman’s Note: We join the Argus Leader editorial board in thanking Senator Tim Johnson for all he has done for South Dakota and for the SD Democratic Party. We all grew up on the legend of Tim Johnson and knew him from afar. In this position we were all blessed to get to know him and his staff on a personal level. You can not find a group of people more dedicated to the state of South Dakota. We will miss Tim as our senator, but we know that we will see him much more often back home. Congratulations on your retirement, Senator, and thanks for all you’ve done. – From Ben, Abby, Jen, Zach, and Jeff.
