What the Hell is the SD Democratic Party doing?

When I first heard about the calls to impeach AG Rumblestrips, my first response was that Noem was behind it and she was using her goons to wash her hands of the bloody spot;

I don’t know. I was on the phone. I just gave him an update and the governor called. They’re going to call me back. The governor is actually involved in this so that is why it is more specific. But it is nice because this person is running for president, I don’t know if they’re running for Democrat or Republican, so they have a huge… budget for the Senate race, which is coming up in a couple months. So that is why we need to do a good job, okay? -Angel Kane, Grand Solutions Inc.

But what is more confusing is why doesn’t the Democratic Party in Sodak have a candidate for AG? The rumor going around is that it will be a throw down between Rumblestrips and Jackboots for the nomination at the convention. Yeah, a corrupt former AG vs. a killer. Shakes couldn’t write a better tragedy.

While the Dems have secured an independent Libertarian to run against Thune, they have yet to find an AG candidate, a congressional candidate or a governor candidate.

I heard today that they tried to recruit John Claussen to run against Dusty but he said he did not want to. John tried to become the Executive Director of the Party, gave great testimony on re-districting, and has been involved with Democratic politics for decades.

But the big rumor is that Billie Sutton and Dan Ahlers MAY announce next week they are running for Governor and Lt. Governor.

I am not holding my breath.

They’re doing what they’ve done for decades. Not putting viable candidates on the ballot. How else did someone as bad as Ravnsborg get elected?

Randy Seiler was the Democratic candidate for AG who ran against Ravnsborg in 2018, Randy was well qualified and had way more courtroom experience than Ravnsborg, he was the former US Attorney for SD and worked in the US Attorney’s office for years before being appointed to the position by Obama.

Why do you say that Bengs is an Independent Libertarian?

Billie Sutton + 420-friendly platform = Governor Sutton

Bengs just recently registered as a Dem, and if you watch this interview, he doesn’t sound to Dem to me.

I would agree GG. He also needs to bring up nepotism and corruption and that over HALF of the state budget is from the Feds.

Killer? You guys weren’t in that car…we know the victim had been drunk earlier in the day, went off the same stretch of road IN THE DAYLIGHT, and was walking back to said vehicle still by the obstacle he HIT in the daylight. Maybe he wanted to end his life and hid off the side of the road and then ran right out into the front of this car? No way anyone could avoid an accident like that.

But, per liberal thinking, never let a tragedy get wasted!!!

Wait a minute, you say that he was drunk and went off the same side of the road? Really? But the other guy claims he just had a Coke, baked potato, and steak, so how is this a fair analogy?
