Conservative Indigenous candidates vie for congressional seats


Western South Dakota, Montana, and New Mexico polling locations have closed.

In South Dakota, Bruce Whalen started off the night with 838 votes 5 minutes after the polls closed in the eastern part of the state. There were a little over 5,200 votes counted at that point with John Thune leading with almost 4,000 of those votes.

At 9:20 p.m. ET, the Associated Press called John Thune as the Republican nominee. Thune will head to the general election where he is likely to win. For the first hour after the polls closed Whalen held strong at around 20 percent of the votes.
