Herseth Sandlin on PBS Wednesday

Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin will discuss the sweeping defeat of congressional Democrats on national TV Wednesday.

SHS was one of three departing Democratic House members who were interviewed for the PBS NewHour reports this week. Veteran reporter Judy Woodruff conducted the interviews. The show airs from 6-7 p.m. Central Standard Time.

Rep. Jim Oberstar of Minnesota, who was beaten in his pursuit of a 19th term, and Virginia Rep. Tom Perriello, who lost in a bid for a second term, were also interviewed for the three-part series.

Herseth Sandlin lost to state Rep. Kristi Noem on Nov. 2. Noem, a Republican from Castlewood, will take office next week and Herseth Sandlin said she will return to Brookings.
