Tim Johnson Gives $200K to South Dakota Democratic Party

YANKTON, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota’s retiring U.S. senator has announced that he’s giving $200,000 to the state’s Democratic party.

The Yankton Press and Dakotan reports that Tim Johnson made the announcement at the State Democratic Convention in Yankton Friday night.

Johnson says he’ll be transferring the remaining funds from his Political Action Committee to the party.

Johnson has served as a U.S. Senator for South Dakota since taking office in 1997.
