Retired Army officer says she’ll run for U.S. House

Posted: Saturday, Oct 19th, 2013

SIOUX FALLS (AP) — A retired Army officer who served in Iraq says she plans to seek the Democratic nomination for South Dakota’s lone seat in the U.S. House.

Forty-eight-year-old Corinna Robinson tells the Argus Leader that she plans to make a formal announcement in the next few weeks about running for the seat now held by Republican Rep. Kristi Noem.

Robinson says she recently resigned as director of the anti-terrorism and force protection directorate at the Pentagon Force Protection Agency so she could run for Congress. She says she was prompted to run in part because of a dysfunctional Congress.

Robinson grew up in Rapid City and joined the Army when she was 17. She retired as a major after 25 years, spending most of her career in the military police.
