This bad

How bad a night was it for the GOP?

PIERRE, S.D. - A woman who died two months ago won a county commissioner's race in Jerauld County on Tuesday.

Democrat Marie Steichen, of Woonsocket, got 100 votes, defeating incumbent Republican Merlin Feistner, of Woonsocket, who had 64 votes.

County Auditor Cindy Peterson said voters knew they were voting for a dead person rather than voting for a Republican.
