SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) — South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem reelection campaign says that she has raised $8.5 million in 2021.

She is touting a historical fundraising haul for a South Dakota gubernatorial candidate.

The Republican governor has $7.3 million on hand across multiple committees, according to her campaign.

Noem has created both a federal political action committee and an in-state reelection campaign account.

Noem faces a primary challenge from state Rep. Steve Haugaard, a former House Speaker who is running to the right of Noem.

His recent financial filings were not yet available from the Secretary of State.
