State GOP chairman steps down

PIERRE — State Sen. Bob Gray said Monday he won’t seek a second two-year term as chairman for the South Dakota Republican Party.
The Pierre legislator was at the helm during one of the Republican Party’s strongest election performances in decades.
Republicans swept every contest for state office, gained seats in both chambers of the Legislature and won back South Dakota’s only seat in the U.S. House of Representatives as state Rep. Kristi Noem of Castlewood upset Democratic incumbent Stephanie Herseth Sandlin.
