A candidate seeking a seat in the South Dakota legislature tells KELOLAND News that he is withdrawing from the race.
The South Dakota Democratic Party confirms that David Skoglund, a Democrat running for the District 8 state house, was arrested in a prostitution sting. Skoglund, of Canova, was reportedly arrested last week in Moorhead, Minnesota. When asked about the arrest, Skoglund told KELOLAND News, "no comment."
The State Democratic Party has released a statement saying "The South Dakota Democratic Party did not know of Mr. Skoglund's illegal activity, and we unequivocally condemn his deplorable actions. We demand he remove his name from the ballot immediately."
