Last week of session. 3 weeks until campaign petition filings close.

As legislators streamed back to town this weekend, this morning marks 22 days until petitions are due back at the Secretary of State’s Office on March 29th.

With legislators coming back for the last week of session, we’ll possibly see several filings this week brought back with them from their home locations, since they won’t be back for a while.

This past week was a wild ride, as several unexpected filings popped up, several of them indicating that we’ll have a health primary season. And as one legislator remarked to me last night, there are “more surprises to come.”

So, keep an eye on for the latest and most up to date in South Dakota campaign coverage as we watch the class of 2016 hopefuls file for election, organize their campaigns, and prepare to do battle.
