Heideprierm South Dakota state Sen. Scott Heidepriem is running for governor, which means that the race for his Senate seat next year will likely be the most expensive in the state.

Heidepriem is a Democrat but the district he represents was formerly held by Republicans and retains a narrow GOP registration advantage. Heidepriem spent near-record amounts to win the district in 2006 and he and his opponent combined in 2008 to spend more than $300,000 -- not much in many states, but the record-holder for most expensive Senate contest in South Dakota history.
