Gant Won’t Seek Reelection

South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant says he will not run for re-election next year. Gant, was a State Senator before he ran for and won election to the state wide office in 2010. He says he feels he has accomplished his goals for the office…

Gant says he felt the timing was good to make his announcement…

Gant has been criticized on several fronts, for endorsing a legislative candidate in a primary, for not pushing for expanded vote centers on reservations, and for his hiring practices. He says much of that was one sided…

Gant says he is focused on his remaining time in office, and has not made any solid plans beyond that.
