May: West River conservatives will split with SDGOP

In a Facebook post, West River legislator Elizabeth May has stated South Dakota conservatives are raising funds and nearing a split with the South Dakota Republican Party in efforts to clean up Pierre's culture of corruption.

Petitions for unaffiliated or "independents" are due 24 April. Third party candidates are nominated at their state conventions.

Principled conservatives are already fighting back against the South Dakota Republican Party insiders in Rapid City. Pierre is broken and the only way to fix it is to have Republicans lose several races to Democrats. Fact is: the best way to a strong two party system in South Dakota is for arch-conservatives to launch an alt-right party. South Dakota's most ardent citizens for liberty are recruiting conservatives to run not just in statewide elections but for the legislature, too.

May, Tonchi Weaver, Steve Livermont, Dan Kaiser, Shad Olson, Florence Thompson, Stace Nelson, Gordon Howie and Scott Jones could be among those candidates. Livermont is horrified three of Governor Denny Daugaard's vetoes couldn't be overturned.

East River conservatives Steve Sibson and Neal Tapio are fed up with the SDGOP and are expected to defect soon. Steve Novotny is also testing the waters.

Gideon Oakes is running in District 30 as a Libertarian.
