Incumbent District 18 Representative Jean Hunhoff says workforce development and healthcare issues will continue to be her focus in Pierre.

Incumbent District 18 Senator Craig Kennedy won re-election and says he intends to see what the composition of the new legislature is before pursuing work on the issues he campaigned on.

First place finisher Ryan Cwach won his seat in the South Dakota Legislature with 28% of the vote.
