Brown County Republicans are meeting for a second time to elect county party officials.
An election was earlier this month, but state party officials have requested another election. Dana Randall, chairman of the Brown County Republicans, said state party bylaws require that five days' notice be given before a vote. That didn't happen earlier this month.
Max Wetz, executive director of the South Dakota Republican Party, also said that some people voted in the first election who shouldn't have. He said all of the people who attended were allowed to vote. State party bylaws indicate that should not have happened. Precinct men and precinct women, county party officials, Republican legislators from the county and elected county officials (such as sheriff, auditor, etc.) are the only people who should be allowed to vote in elections for new county officials, Wetz said.and...
There was only one contested race in the first election, Randall said. That was for party chairman. In the vote, Isaac Latterell defeated Duane Sutton.
And guess what, I'm told that last night Isaac defeated Duane for the County Chairmanship, again, and by a substantial margin (again). This marks the third time that the two have ran against each other within GOP circles, the first being the legislative primary for that district.
I also keep hearing that it's anticipated that both of them will be running (again) for the same legislative seat in 2008.
Stay tuned. This battle isn't over yet.
