South Dakota Gets A Bite at the Presidential Apple.

Without a definitive leader in the Republican Presidential race this year, the South Dakota Republican Caucus will actually have an influence on the choice of nominee for President.  In years past by the time the South Dakota caucuses met, the nominee had already been established.

Not this year.  The South Dakota Republican Party actually has an opportunity to help choose their Republican Presidential candidate.

On March 1st at 8 PM we South Dakota Republicans will caucus in support of our individual choices.  We will be able to stand up and be counted in favor of the person we want as President of our United States.

Those chosen by vote will be eligible to vie for a seat on the floor of the National Convention in Tampa, Florida next August.

What’s so exciting about that?  There is a growing chance that this will be a brokered convention.

A Brokered Convention?

There is a real possibility this year that there will be no candidate with the required 1144 votes to capture the nomination in the first vote.  If there is no front runner with a the required (50% +1) votes on the first vote, the choice is put in the hands of the delegates on the floor.  This could very well be one of those special events in your life you replay for your grandchildren.

South Dakota Republicans, the trail to Tampa starts in your County Seat March 1st.  To be nominated as a delegate to the Republican National Convention plan to be at your county caucus.  With very few exceptions, this is where the journey starts.

This is an exciting time for South Dakota. We finally get a turn at bat. We get a choice, rather than having our choice made for us. If you want to be at what could be a history making Republican National Convention and if you want a voice as to who should be your next President, see you at the caucus.
