Dave Novstrup announces he’s done.

I’d mentioned this on February 28th, but here’s the official on Senator Dave Novstrup deciding to take a pass.  From Facebook/Aberdeen American News:

At the same time, the person who would have been his opponent is spending today braying like an ass claiming that he drove Novstrup from office. Which I’m sure couldn’t be farther from the truth.

Ask other good and qualified people such as former State Representative Christine Erickson how tough it is to be in Pierre for 2 – 3 months as you try to manage kids, work, etcetera, especially with a young family. It isn’t easy, and after ten years, I can see where he’s looking for a break, and wants to spend time with his kids.

It does bring up a good point that those wishing to donate to Al Novstrup, who will be running for the District 3 State Senate seat can do so at:

Novstrup for Senate
1705 Northview Lane
Aberdeen, SD 57401

When November rolls around, you’ll be glad you did.

    I have it on very good authority that David made this decision some time ago – long before the lunatic blogger entered the race – and just keep his decision to himself until the end of session.

    Nice guy. Al is a better candidate and better legislator so this is good for them and for Aberdeen. And for the Senate.

    Cory is the perennial bitch when it comes to his political judgment. And will be made the bitch once again.

            Cliff I just got back on WAR and noticed you replied to something which seems a bit amiss. Not that I don’t appreciate all the kind thoughts about District 23’s very tough House Primary coming up but CH in this case means Corey Heidelberger.

            On a side note both David Novstrup and I are married to Holly’s. And we are both very stand up guys. (Your welcome David!) So the Freudian slip with CH is easily understood.
