SDGOP Statement on Candidacy of Jay Williams

February 18th, 2016

PIERRE – South Dakota GOP Chairwoman Pam Roberts issued the following statement following the announcement of Jay Williams running for the Democratic nomination for U.S. Senate in South Dakota.

“John Thune is a champion for South Dakota in the U.S. Senate and I expect him to successfully make the case to voters this fall as to why we need him to continue fighting for us in Washington,” said Roberts.

“Jay Williams isn’t known to many South Dakotans today but as they learn about his passionate support for increased income, property and sales taxes on the rich and poor, young and old, I believe the choice for U.S. Senate will become very clear. We don’t need to send someone to the U.S. Senate who would be another vote for the Obama-Clinton-Sanders agenda,” concluded Roberts.
