From Jon Ellis at the Argus Leader:
Which was why Mickelson was in Aberdeen last week. Only, the Brown County Republicans went ahead and announced Mickelson as a candidate, even though there has been no announcement. From the group’s invite:
“Thursday, June 9th, Mark Mickelson will be our guest speaker at the Reagan Lunch in Mavericks. Mark will be running for the SD Governor spot in 2018. He would like to introduce himself to you on Thursday.”
It was a good turnout, according to one person at the lunch. About 50 people attended, and Mickelson gave a bio speech that talked about his background, his roots etc.
“I think he was well received,” said the person I spoke to.
