SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The South Dakota Republican Party says it’ll take legal action against a political action committee if it doesn’t pull a television advertisement the party says is “defamatory” toward U.S. Senate candidate Mike Rounds.

Party Chairman Craig Lawrence threatened to sue Every Voice Action on Wednesday and the television stations that have been airing the ad.

But the Argus Leader reports legal action is unlikely. Every Voice Action spokesman Adam Smith tells the paper that the ads would stop airing Wednesday in light of Tuesday’s decision by a California arbitrator.

The ad in question purports Rounds “refuses to take responsibility” for issues that have come to light over the state-run EB-5 program while he was governor.
