SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - One member of South Dakota’s delegation to the Republican National Convention found it hard to look when the group announced its support for GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump.

State Rep. Isaac Latterell of Tea shook his head, rolled his eyes and clamped his hand over his face.

Latterell was positioned just a few feet behind South Dakota Republican Party Chairwoman Pam Roberts as she spoke, and his gestures were captured Tuesday night by TV stations and media livestreams of the event in Cleveland.

Latterell tells the Argus Leader newspaper (https://argusne.ws/29TrnXC ) that he thinks Trump’s nomination is “a sad day for the Republican party.” He says he doesn’t think Trump has a chance of winning the presidency.

Latterell says he voted for Texas Sen. Ted Cruz in South Dakota’s primary election.
