SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Former South Dakota state Rep. Lora Hubbel says she will challenge incumbent Gov. Dennis Daugaard in the Republican primary next year.
The 55-year-old Hubbel, of Sioux Falls, says she opposes the new federal health care law and new Common Core learning standards for schools.
Hubbel served in the state House for one term, in 2011-12.
Daugaard spokesman Tony Venhuizen says that the governor is focused not on the campaign but on the next legislative session, the devastating early October blizzard in the Black Hills and the effects of the recently ended federal government shutdown.
