South Dakota Legislative Leaders Chosen
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.
