PIERRE, South Dakota: Incumbent Jenna Haggar and her father Don Haggar will serve together in the next session of the South Dakota House of Representatives.[1]

The Haggars defeated Dave Munson in the Republican primary on June 5 to advance to the general election on November 6, 2012.[1] They then defeated Jo Hausman and Brian Parsons in the general election.[2][3][4]

The two Haggars did all their campaigning together. "It's like the Olympics, we're looking for the gold and silver, we're on the same team," Don Haggar commented.[1]

Jenna Haggar said, "I think Dad probably wanted me to win more than he wanted himself to win and I definitely wanted my dad to come at successful as well, and so I think the most ideal situation happened in which we were both able to get elected."[1]

Jenna Haggar's grandfather, Don Haggar, Sr., also served in the South Dakota State Legislature during the 1950's.[1]

The Haggars will represent District 10 in the South Dakota House of Representatives.[1]
