SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - South Dakota U.S. Sen. Mike Rounds has raised about $42,700 in the most recent fundraising quarter and is sitting on about $30,300 of debt.

Recently released federal campaign finance reports show Rounds has about $3,700 in the bank. The fundraising period ran from April through June.

The former South Dakota governor won his U.S. Senate seat in November.

Rob Skjonsberg has served as Rounds campaign manager. Skjonsberg says the team expects to show the debt has been paid in the next campaign finance filing.

Rounds won’t face re-election until 2020 and joined U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem and U.S. Sen. John Thune as the third Republican in the South Dakota congressional delegation.

He defeated Democrat Rick Weiland and independents Larry Pressler and Gordon Howie for the seat.
