    Nice letter and a YUGE endorsement for Lance from my Senator. It will definitely be an interesting and a fun convention.

      Mr. Hilgemann, Are you supporting Mr. Russell?

      Don’t you think with all his baggage that he is not electable either at the convention or if somehow he made it out of the convention, in the general?

      Don’t you think the Democrats would have fun pointing out all his ethical issues from the supreme court ethics opinion to being fired recently as the city attorney in Edgemont?

        Am I the only one that is convinced that you are pulling your responses to LR from a set of talking points or pre-planned answers? Find a new word besides “baggage.”

        And the ethics issues – why don’t you read up on how Lance Russell recovered over $1 M by prosecuting a corrupt Mayor, and as a result – there was political blowback. As the saying goes, “No good deed, goes unpunished.” Lance as a State’s Attorney took a stand against the powerful, wealthy and influential – and he prevailed – but not without scratches along the way. The reprimand is cooked up B.S. Notably, even Patsy Poo-Poo here wrote about it at the time – noting that Lance had more than adequate grounds to appeal it further.

        Do your research. But my guess is, you aren’t interested – your spin-doctoring like a MOFO.

          I am interested and willing to give Lance Russell the chance to talk about it. I want to hear his side of the story….but when you have a former Chief Justice investigating who has an impeccable reputation in the legal community and a 5-0 decision of the state supreme court….the evidence seems overwhelming….you have to claim that all of these people are somehow in on a conspiracy against him…that is a tough sell.

          https://caselaw.findlaw.com/sd-supreme-court/1564780.html

          Look at paragraph 51

          In recommending public censure the Referee recognized that Russell’s misconduct was mitigated by his lack of a prior disciplinary record, his cooperation with the Disciplinary Board, his relative inexperience in the practice of law, and his willingness to concede that his conduct was improper and he made mistakes. The Referee (and the Disciplinary Board) recommended that Russell be publicly censured.

          RUSSELL CONCEDED THAT HIS CONDUCT WAS IMPROPER AND HE MADE MISTAKES.

          Jordan, is there a reason you’re anonymously posting about a campaign you are being paid to work for, as well as engaging in name calling?

      Are you suggesting that Mr. Russell, a handsome devil by all accounts, looks like that bald captain from the old Star Track movies, or that Mr. Seiler would stand head and shoulders above the GOP nominee should it be Mr. Russell?

    I really like Greenfield but to endorse Russell is surprising. They might be friends but is Russell really the person for the AG job when he had problems as a City attorney smart?

    Fired as a city attorney and chastised with a wagging finger by the Supreme Court, but Mr. Russell plays by no rules except Mr. Nelson’s.

    Russell is toxic to this the AG race, worst choice ever to run for AG with all his baggage. Not only was he fired and reprimanded by the Supreme Court, but he is also running for multiple offices to hedge is bet. Not the type of person one would want as an AG.

    Russell will have to surrender his campaign for Senate if he runs for AG.
    There’s no way Russell can beat Seiler, so Greenfield gets Russell out of his hair.

    Get it?

      Minor details as to when the senate campaign will end, it will have to end if he is nominated for AG, and that will get him out of Greenfield’s hair.

      Oaks may just slide in for a win on that one. Will there be a mailer from SD Gun Owners showing Heidelberger endorses Oaks too?

        Haha… Who knows if they will? They’d be silly to shoot at me when protecting firearm and ammunition ownership is literally my #2 campaign pledge.

        As for Cory Heidelberger, referring to me as “reasonable” does not an endorsement constitute. 🙂

        As for my odds of winning, my message resonates with District 30 folks who are tired of “business as usual” in Pierre, and there are a lot of them who are. I will not be outworked, because that’s the one variable I can control. Outspent? Possibly.

      That is why he should have to decide now…not fair to the voters of dist 30….some committee may pick the nominee…just don’t like him putting the seat at risk for his own benefit…

    So, according to Sen. Greenfield, the Second Amendment is now “God given”? Let’s not go that far. Interesting interpretation of the Holy Bible, or is it the US Constitution, or both! Moses came down from the mountain with the 11th Commandment in hand that says “stand your ground”. Really?
