  • Johnson: Building relationships

    I came to Congress to solve real issues for South Dakotans.

  • In Virginia, forgiveness is embedded in history

    I have long loved the Commonwealth of Virginia, and everything else being equal, I might have chosen to live there. The sheer beauty of the state’s pastoral and mountainous landscapes soothed a New Jersey boy’s heart. Walking across the University of Virginia campus along the white-pillared porticoes on The Lawn afforded me a glimpse of an ordered life I’d hardly dared imagine.
