Yankton—Jason Ravnsborg announced today his candidacy for the United States Senate for the state of South Dakota.
Jason Ravnsborg is running for the U.S. Senate seat currently held by Senator Tim Johnson. Senator Johnson announced his retirement at the end of this Congressional session.
Jason has a diverse background having grown up on a farm, by being a small business owner, by working as a practicing attorney and serving our nation as a Major in the Army Reserves.

Jason has been deployed three times in support of the Global War on Terrorism. He has been deployed to Germany, Iraq and Afghanistan. He was awarded a Bronze Star Medal, a Combat Action Badge and he was honored at Congress for his service.
When asked what his major accomplishment was as a member of the Army, Jason said, “Even with all of the accomplishments we, as a unit, achieved; my personal highest achievement was bringing the men and women I was responsible for all home to their loved ones.”
Jason has answered the call from the citizens of South Dakota to run for the U.S. Senate. Jason believes that our national debt is out of control and that we must balance our budget.
