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:

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