UNDATED–South Dakota House Majority Leader Lee Qualm of Platte has lost his bid to remain in the Legislature.

Qualm was term limited in the House, and was running for a District 21 Senate seat Tuesday.

But he was soundly defeated by Erin Tobin of Winner in a Senate primary.

Tobin won that race by about 800 votes (2,155-1,366).
