Father and daughter will serve together in South Dakota state house
The Haggars defeated Dave Munson in the Republican primary on June 5 to advance to the general election on November 6, 2012. They then defeated Jo Hausman and Brian Parsons in the general election.
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."
