Randy Seiler elected chair of South Dakota Democratic Party

By Lisa Kaczke


The South Dakota Democratic Party has a permanent leader again after its leadership resigned in September.

The state party's Central Committee elected Randy Seiler to serve as the chair on Saturday, according to a party announcement. Seiler, the party's vice chair, has been serving as the interim chair since Paula Hawks resigned as chair in September. SDDP Executive Director Stacey Burnette jointly resigned with Hawks.

Nikki Gronli, chair of the Minnehaha County Democratic Party, was elected by the Central Committee on Saturday to fill the vice chair being vacated by Seiler.

Seiler said he plans to stay in the position until 2021. He told the Argus Leader in September that he wasn’t planning to seek election as the permanent chair but changed his mind after he began to work on straightening out the party's financial problems.

1. Changing economics

2. "two years ago there were more Dems" - false.

Republicans greatly outnumber Democrats in voter registration in South Dakota and have for many years, including the 2018 midterms.

The 2018 numbers were:

R-256,502
D-158,972
