Russell, Ravnsborg and Fitzgerald have been nominated. And the speeches have commenced!
Larry Rhoden handily won the vote for Lt. Governor on a weighted vote of 78% to Stace Nelson’s 22%
After no one would stand to give a nomination speech or seconding speech, a sweaty Stace Nelson got up to talk about his favorite topic, himself, and his “judo-Christian” beliefs.
Larry Rhoden was proudly nominated for Lt Gov with speeches by Matt Michels, and seconded by Dale Bartscher.
Stace Nelson was nominated by someone from Butte County, but when asked for speeches no one would stand up for him to give one. Wow!
There are a total of 619 delegates in attendance at the SDGOP convention!
Stacie Suedkamp is a Flandreau small businesswoman participating as a delegate at this years’ Republican State Convention in Pierre. And in addition to bringing her vote to convention, she’s brought her work:
Stacie has a custom cookie business that she’s started in the last year or so as she changed her business from a small restaurant to a bakery specializing in custom cookies.
Her business “Fig Tales” is billed as “the little cookie company that can put just about anything you can think of on a cookie!” And as evidenced by the several types of custom cookies I’ve seen running around the convention, that’s not an idle boast.

Larry Rhoden is now prepared to be Lt Governor. Forthcoming nomination? Check.
Matt Michels style facial accessory? Check.
The Chip Campbell PAC which took 10,000 from a sketchy Washington DC Group To influence party committeeman and committeewoman races, and also funded the Laura Kaiser endorsement mailing for Lance Russell just sent out a negative email blast attacking Attorney General candidate Jason Ravnsborg:
They certainly seem to be pulling out all the stops in order to influence the Attorney General’s race.
At this point, I think delegates are numb to the constant stream of negative. They’re ready to go have a beer or an ice cream cone in the hospitality suites, as opposed to reading negative screeds.
