The party challenging Republican State Senator Lance Russell’s re-nomination bid for a District 30 senate seat say they won’t appeal a circuit court’s decision.

That decision allows Russell’s name to appear on the November election ballot, even though he withdrew from the race in June.

 Russell resigned his nomination for re-election in District 30 for a chance at becoming the Republican party’s nominee for attorney general. South Dakota codified law states no candidate’s name shall appear on the ballot twice.
