SDGOP Elects Delegates and Alternates for Republican National Convention
Today over 70 delegates from counties across the state met in Pierre to elect delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention in Cleveland July 17-21. Twenty six delegates and twenty six alternates were elected from a pool of county delegates. In addition, the South Dakota Republican Party State Chair, National Committeeman and National Committeewoman are delegates for a total of twenty-nine delegates.

“I am very pleased with how our election process worked,” stated State Party Chairwoman Pam Roberts. “We had a lot of interest from across the state and Republicans are excited about electing a Republican new President in November.”
Governor Dennis Daugaard was elected as the Chairman of the South Dakota Delegation. Hal Wick and Nancy Neff of Sioux Falls were elected to serve on the Platform Committee. Roger Meyer of Yankton was elected to serve on the Credentials Committee. David Wheeler of Huron and Sandye Kading of Rapid City were elected to serve on the Rules Committee. John Teupel of Spearfish and Lynne DiSanto of Rapid City were elected to serve on the Committee on Permanent Organization.
Congratulation to the South Dakota Republicans elected as delegates and alternates to the Republican National Convention!
