Hillary For South Dakota Declares Victory In The State

Clinton Campaign Supporter: '...to have a woman nominee, that's long overdue.'

The Democratic race for the Presidential nominee wasn’t called in South Dakota until about 11 o’clock Tuesday night.

Clinton was ahead of Sanders for the majority of the night, but the race was too close to call until then. Hillary supporters waited anxiously for the results to come in at Shenanigans Bar and Grill in Sioux Falls.

The state director for Hillary for South Dakota, Adam Weiland, was campaigning across South Dakota with the former FEMA Director and his father, Former U.S. Senate Candidate Rick Weiland. They were in Rapid City as the results rolled in, but we watched another member of the Weiland family take in the historic moment as Hillary secured the nomination earlier in the night.

Stacy Newcomb-Weiland said, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen a more qualified candidate for president than Hillary Clinton. She has been so important, (played) such an important role throughout the last 30 years. I don’t think there’s anyone else that’s ever served in quite the way she has and I also think it’s really important and wonderful to have a woman nominee, that’s long overdue.”

Newcomb-Weiland says they need to remain focused and this is when the real work begins. They will continue to campaign for Hillary up until November, looking forward to the general election.
