South Dakota GOP Chairman Tim Rave, Committeeman Dana Randall and Committeewoman Mary Jean Jensen have decided to support Mitt Romney at the convention.
The three top officials in the South Dakota Republican Party have begun to shed their earlier neutrality now that Mitt Romney is the party’s presumed presidential nominee.
South Dakota Republican Party Chairman Tim Rave, National Committeeman Dana Randall and National Committeewoman Mary Jean Jensen are automatic delegates to the party’s national convention. They declined to endorse anyone earlier in the year, saying they would support the presidential candidate who won South Dakota’s June primary.
Randall and Jensen now have endorsed Romney. Rave says he personally supports Romney but would still vote for the primary winner if one of the other candidates would happen to win South Dakota’s primary.
A Sandye Kading supporter sent me one of her literature pamphlets. Several people have indicated to me that Sandye is working hard and attending Republican events all across the state. She would make a great advocate for the SD GOP as national committeewoman at the RNC. Kading is running to replace Mary Jean Jensen who has decided not to seek another term.
