Bosworth Officially Enters Senate Race



Bookmark and Share

In the quiet town of Plankinton, down the gravel roads, there was some buzz Tuesday afternoon.  Friends, family, and supporters gathered at the fifth generation home.  Doctor Annette Bosworth grew up here, but now works in Sioux Falls.  Today she announced, she’s running as a Republican in the U.S. Senate race.

Bosworth stands firm that if she is elected, she won't raise taxes and will repeal ‘Obama-care’.  
She is entering a fight with two candidates, who both have backgrounds in politics; former Governor Mike Rounds and State Senator Larry Rhoden.  

Bosworth says she willingly accepts the title as under-dog.  “I say thank you, I think they are disconnected, they have not been serving in these communities, they have not been touching the lives of what these bureaucrats do to patients.

Bosworth says she has spent the past year traveling the state trying to get a feel for what citizens are looking for in a candidate.  She thinks people want something current politicians don't have.
“The bigger communities get, we hide.  That needs to stop, that transparency needs present in medicine, and it needs present in Washington, and you can't get it from somebody who's never practiced that.”

Bosworth says she feels as though she was born to do this.  “That's South Dakota, I don't serve the underserved because it’s an accident, it’s in my blood to help the ones around us.”
