GOP Runs More SD Legislative Candidates Than Dems

GOP Runs More SD Legislative Candidates Than Dems
PIERRE, SD -

The Republican Party apparently will once again field more candidates than Democrats will for South Dakota legislative races.

State Democratic Party Chairman Ben Nesselhuf says he expects that by the time all candidates have filed, Democrats will compete for about 25 of the 35 Senate seats and 55 of the 70 House seats.

State Republican Party Executive Director Tony Post says the GOP expects to run candidates for 32 Senate seats and 65 House seats.

Tuesday was the deadline for candidates to file, but the secretary of state's office also will accept nominating petitions sent by registered mail postmarked by 5 p.m.

Republicans now hold 30 Senate seats to the Democrats' five. In the House, 50 representatives are currently Republicans, 19 are Democrats, and one is independent.
