Is the Senate Race Too Crowded?

The entry of Yankton attorney Jason Ravnsborg into the republican Senate race this week made him the fifth active candidate.

Former Republican Party Chair, and political blogger Joel Rosenthal of Sioux Falls says not all five may make it to the June primary ballot…

 

Rosenthal says a low budget, door to door campaign is possible, but unlikely to succeed…

 

Rosenthal says there are mixed feelings about republican primary races…

 

He says financial reports that are due at the end of the year will also have an effect on many of the candidate’s chances.

Besides Ravnsborg, former Governor Mike Rounds is in the race, along with State Senator Larry Rhoden, State Representative Stace Nelson, and Dr Annette Bosworth.
