Lora Hubbel on South Dakota politics

Lora L. Hubbel is an American politician and former state chair of the Constitution Party of South Dakota.

Hubbel is from Sioux Falls, South Dakota. She first ran for office in 2006, coming 8th out of 11 candidates in the nonpartisan election for Mayor of Sioux Falls with 662 votes (2.2%). In 2010 she was elected to the South Dakota House of Representatives as a Republican, representing District 11. She did not run for re-election in 2012, instead running against incumbent Republican State Senator Deb Peters of the 9th Senate District. She was defeated by Peters, 363 votes (47.27%) to 405 (52.73%). She is also a former chair of the Minnehaha County Republican Party.

She ran for the Republican nomination for Governor of South Dakota in the 2014 election, challenging incumbent Republican Dennis Daugaard. She lost to Daugaard in the primary, polling 14,196 votes (19.13%) to his 60,017 (80.87%). She was subsequently announced as the new running mate of Independent candidate Mike Myers, replacing his initial running mate, who dropped out due to a family illness. Secretary of State of South Dakota Jason Gant refused to remove Collier's name, saying that state law had no provision for replacing an Independent candidate on the ballot. In July, Myers sued the Secretary of State to allow him to change his running mate and on August 18, federal judge Lawrence L. Piersol of the United States District Court for the District of South Dakota ruled in Myers' favour.
