Before running for office candidates might want to double check to see which party they are registered with and make sure it is correct before filing. That's the dilema that Republican Senate candidate Dennis Schmidt is facing in his run for the South Dakota District 33 Senate race.
The problem is that the Pennington County Auditor's Office had Schmidt listed as an independent when he signed his declaration of candidacy, but then it was changed to Republican. It is not clear where this issue is headed. Maybe to court?
