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. 🙂
