At 5 pm, 2 hours before the polls even closed, Democratic challenger for South Dakota Attorney General Ron Volesky conceded to incumbent Larry Long.
“I want to congratulate Larry Long on his victory. He ran a brilliant campaign and I was told Mr. Long had a some really nice TV ads. The difference in the outcome of the campaign was due to the fact that Mr. Long had a Republican Party behind him that was willing to help finance his campaign while I received no financial support from the Democratic Party.
Not that there was ever any doubt but don’t you think at least waiting until the polls had closed would have been better?
