Dems agree Republicans providing good government
PIERRE – South Dakota Democrats apparently agree that three Republican elected officials are the best people for the job.
Democrats failed last weekend at their state convention to nominate candidates to take on Secretary of State Chris Nelson, State Treasurer Vern Larson and State Auditor Rich Sattgast.
“These three gentlemen are good stewards for the people of South Dakota and the Democrats evidently agree that Republicans provide good government,” said South Dakota Republican Party Chairman Randy Frederick. “All our Republican elected officials and candidates have been and will continue to provide solid leadership. I’m glad to see that the Democrats think so too.”
Frederick said he expects the Democrats’ actions will end their complaint about one-party dominance. “It’s hard to take them seriously when they fail time after time to field candidates at this level. Secretary of State is the highest ranking position ever left vacant in the history of the state,” he said. “Clearly Republicans are getting results for South Dakota and continue to make this a great place to live and work.”
