    Well of course he did. I like Lance Russell and he would have done a great job too, but his first mistake was not distancing himself from Stace Nelson. No one is willing to endorse Nelson’s agenda.

            If Ravnsborg were to somehow pull off a victory in the general the bar would be embarrassingly reduced for the state top law enforcement position. It’s obvious political favors were owed to this guy.

    The opposition is going to have fun going after Navy Seal or was it fighter pilot and experienced prosecutor Ravnsborg.

        You know as long as we are at it. Jason’s handlers could market a Jason Ravnsborg action figure to further create the image as a seasoned courtroom legal eagle and have him as an Astronaut, Army Green Beret, fighter pilot ace, Navy Seal though going as far as being an Avenger would lose credibility and get them and Jason into trouble with Marvel Comics and copyright laws. That would be bad.

    Some people don’t know the difference between arguing a case in front of a panel of people who couldn’t figure out how to avoid jury duty, and arguing a case in front of a panel of judges who walked over hot coals to sit on the bench.

      Not really sure what you’re getting at here. But, regardless of that, I don’t think any three of the candidates have argued in front of a panel of judges.

    Jason is a great guy with strong conservative values. I honestly cannot fathom why anyone would think Seiler would win. Good for Jason, as he was the best and most articulate candidate in this race.

        Why is opposition to the death penalty based on religious grounds a problem? That does not influence the fact, at all, that South Dakota has the death penalty and anyone who works for the state will do their job when push comes to shove.

          Its’ a huge problem because that individual simply hasn’t studied or comprehended The Bible. In other words, a false conservative, a false Christian, a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

    If Jason is as described, do you realize how small it makes those he trounced look?

    Losing 63-37 to a big deal allows you to keep your head up.

    Give JR some credit or you make LR and JF look like really, really big losers.

    Just when I think the Republican Party can’t get any dumber, they totally redeem themselves. Congratulations Jason Ravnsborg!

    The least capable and worst candidate the SD GOP has ever fielded.
    Who was it again that won?
    Oh, yeah. It doesn’t matter. Mr. Seiler now romps us all.

          You are denigrating an individual serving our country by calling him a joke? All for the sake of getting your anonymous viewpoints out on a blog talkback?

          I believe we all see the joke.

    Wow. So what’s the count? Stace and Co: 0. Effective conservatives: 100. The party of conservatives moves forward-in spite of Stace and his band of ineffective full time professional political agitatiors.

    Mary is an amazing woman. The Fitz family is very much admired in western South Dakota. Very loyal, hardworking, and generous. Mary would help about anyone in need. Very respected. Great matriarch.

      Is this a joke? I have found Mary to be the most deceptful and hateful person in this race. She tried to bully anyone that didn’t support her husband. I understand her wanting her husband to win but how she carried herself through this process was shameful.

      I for one am glad we won’t have to hear from Mary again.

      As someone who directly warned Mary that Nelson and his coalition were toxic and should be distanced at all costs, I was surprised by the Russell-Fitzgerald stunt of Friday night.
      Fitz was looking like he was pulling ahead of Russell.
      Russell realized Fitz’s supporters were already in the building and played him like a fiddle.
      The blue sheets were distributed at the banquet in spite of a rule against any campaign materials in the room.
      A large number of Russell supporters never saw it because they weren’t at the banquet, but Firzgerald’s supporters were, and they changed their minds and broke for Ransborg.

      Russell did what he needed to make sure he came in 2nd on the first ballot.

      All I have to say to Mary now is “I told you so.”

      So if so somebody had the same credentials but was female it would meet with your aporoval? Being “historic” makes it all worthwhile? Truly the sign of a mindless liberal. Obama was “historic -historically crappy!

    JR as our AG candidate. Letting that sink in. With a state full of exceptional Republican State’s Attorneys we select a volunteer State’s Attorney. Again, letting that sink in.

    The full time States Attorneys are busy protecting their communities to be politicians. It’s too bad because there are some good ones. Maybe in 4 years one will step up?

    Congratulations Jason you’ll make an excellent AG for SD.

    Anyone associated with Lautenschlager and Stace Nelson must be thoroughly defeated and sent packin. Did everyone forget that Lance Russell was disciplined by the South Dakota Supreme Court? What moron actually believes Russell would have made it through the general elections with his vengeful record of abuse?

    Wake up SD – WAKE UP! Jason was the ONLY option.

    This was the worst field of candidates the GOP has ever had. Ron Volesky would make a better AG than Jason. The guy is a joke. My vote and support is for Randy in November.

      So you are an expert in the field, Nancy? Boy, I’m glad I could learn from you (cough) wisdom. Thanks for your half cent worth, lefty.

    Some people are stubbornly stupid.

    There is a moron who keeps reminding us of one of Jason’s biggest strength and one his opponents didn’t have- Serious management chops. The AG’s office isn’t just the biggest law firm with the most diverse customer and responsibilities it is our largest law enforcement agency.

    To run this place requires seldom held by a good attorney. In fact, usually attorneys have others manage for them. But, Jason comes to the office with the greatest management experience.

    I wish the idiot who keeps reminding us of his military experience would sign his name so he could be properly recognized as a major factor in helping Jason stand out.

    Congratulations to a fine man who will work his heart out like he worked for the nomination. We need to all work together to help demolish Seiler.
