PIERRE, S.D. (AP) – Rapid City Republican lawmaker David Lust has been re-elected majority leader in the South Dakota House.

Lust’s re-election Saturday follows the earlier re-election of Wentworth Republican Russell Olson as Senate majority leader.

Members of the minority Democrats also have re-elected leaders, for both chambers. Bernie Hunhoff of Yankton was re-elected House minority leader, and Jason Frerichs of Wilmot was chosen the Democratic leader in the Senate.

The 2013 session opens at noon on Jan. 8.
