SDGOP OFFERS CONDOLENCES TO FAMILY OF CONGRESSMAN CLINT ROBERTS

Pierre, SD – February 13, 2017 – The South Dakota Republican Party offers sincere condolences to the family of former Republican Congressman Clint Roberts.

“Congressman Clint Roberts was the definition of a South Dakota Statesman. Our sincere condolences go out to his family and friends,” said South Dakota Republican Party Chairman Dan Lederman. “The Roberts family has given much to our Republican Party in South Dakota and they are in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time,” added Chair Lederman.

A rancher from central South Dakota, Congressman Roberts was elected to Congress the same year Ronald Reagan was first elected to the White House. Roberts served as the West River Representative in DC when South Dakota had two Congressional Districts.  

Funeral arrangements will be published on the South Dakota Republican Party website when they become available.

    Good for the SD GOP. This is pretty exciting to see them releasing press releases on important topics to the state.

    It is sad to see that Clint passed but it is also important that those familiar with him know.

    I can already see a change in communication. The SDDP was really good at communicating under Nesselhuf. Unfortunately they were not good at organizing, being moderate or not being skeezy.
