- Charles Haan sued Secretary of State Jason Gant for "illegally" declining to put him on the ballot. “He was 45 signatures short of even meeting the 250, even if every single line he submitted was accurate,” Gant said. Haan lost his case, and he did not appear on the ballot.
In 2012, Noem was re-elected to the U.S. Congress, representing South Dakota's At-Large Congressional District.
