Rep. Liz Thomson, a Democrat, is running for reelection in state House District 24.

Growing up in a tiny town with a one-room schoolhouse on a Native reservation in South Dakota, state Rep. Liz Thomson and her six siblings all got along well.

Of course, the siblings had their fair share of typical spats, but the six sisters and their late brother were close.

Their rural surroundings didn’t give them much choice.
