Help Us Flourish

We need your help if we are going to take South Dakota and America back from special interests


Change Comes
from the Outside

There is fundamentally nothing wrong with America that we cannot solve.  We just need new managers in Congress who are willing to work together and push past the corporate lobbyists.

Partisan Bickering
Must End

We Republicans and Democrats are not adversaries, but joint heirs of the American Experiment and joint caretakers of the American Dream. How well we fulfill our roles will determine the kind of America we leave for those who follow us.

Tim's Message

I am convinced that we need to send strong, independent leaders to Washington who will stand up for South Dakota values. I will be a voice of reason and support for those who work and send their sons and daughters off to war. I am also convinced we need timely healthcare for all, and far, far more effort to protect the vulnerable children growing up in our communities. That’s why I am running for Congress.


The issues we face are not insurmountable. We just need common sense people who are willing to work across the aisle to get the job done. My entire career as a judge was devoted to seeking fair answers to problems in a nonpartisan manner, and that is how I will legislate as your congressman.


I have never been politically active, and I don’t care what your politics are. I need your help if we are going to build a better South Dakota and America.

Protecting Social Security

Protecting Social Security

My 10th South Dakota Promise: I will be a sentinel to protect Social Security against attacks from the Republican Congress. Republicans promised us the tax breaks for the wealthy would pay for themselves. As I and anyone else familiar with arithmetic said then, that was wrong -- and untruthful. That…
