A Convention preview, and hint of the future from National Committeeman Dana Randall

From the Aberdeen American News, outgoing GOP National Committeman Dana Randall offers a preview of this weekend’s GOP National Convention…. and teases us a little with regards to his future political plans:

Dana Randall, South Dakota’s national committee chairman, said the convention kicks off the start of the 2018 election season. He said he knows of two 2018 candidates for South Dakota governor who will be hosting hospitality rooms. They are state Rep. Mark Mickelson and Attorney General Marty Jackley. But Randall is confident others will be campaigning.

About 200 voting delegates are expected at convention, said Char Cornelius, chairwoman of the Brown County Republicans. Close to 300 could be in attendance at Friday’s banquet, she said.

This will be Randall’s last convention as national committeeman.

“After eight years, it’s time for someone else,” he said in a phone interview earlier this week.

As national committeeman, Randall and South Dakota’s National Committeewoman Sandye Kading of Rapid City act as liaisons between the state and national party. Randall said the experience has been a great opportunity. He said he has future political plans, but he’s not ready to share them yet.

“He said he has future political plans, but he’s not ready to share them yet.”   C’mon Dana – Don’t tease us. Let us know what you’re thinking of doing. Drop me a note. You know everyone confesses to me.  🙂

    Brown Co GOPer you really seem to have a rod stuck up your rear end for my old good friend Dana. The guy is a stand up person and says it the way he sees it certainly to the Right of many Republicans today.

    Charlie, Dana has burned a lot of bridges in his political comings and goings. Some people don’t see it b/c he is slick about it.

      Brown Co GOPer,

      Dana is the farthest thing from slick. He’s basically a what you see is what you get kind of guy. If you are NOT honest and upfront with him then you are going to get a butt chewing – deservedly so. If you ARE honest and upfront with him then you are going to have one of the best, most loyal friends in the entire world.

      I suspect you are not upfront with most people in your life like you should be. The way you are hiding behind anonymous and false accusations tells me what I need to know. Who have you not been honest and upfront with recently?

    There is a lot of talk that Dana is considering running for a constitutional office. He would make a great treasurer. His years of experience as a financial advisor would be great for the investment council. I’ve heard he is very interested in State Auditor. He’d be a slam dunk choice for the nomination.

      This is purely speculation. I have not heard it from his mouth. Lots of Randall supporters across the state.
