Republican State Representative Dan Kaiser has been going through an experience I wouldn’t wish on anyone. Kaiser has been busy for most of the session attending to his child in Sioux Falls who has been bravely battling leukemia. The Kaiser family has been the recipient of an outpouring of support for their son Jaxon, as they work for his treatment and recovery. I didn’t think there was anyone who would begrudge him that, until yesterday.
And yesterday is when a recent comment from newly announced District 3 State Senate Candidate Cory Heidelberger was shocking to the sensibility of many, as he suggested Kaiser’s resignation, so a bill Heidelberger favored could be passed:

Should voters hold this against Heidelberger at the ballot box?
