SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - The state Democratic Party’s executive director has left to work on a statewide campaign.

Top races for 2018 include contests for governor and U.S. House, both of which are currently controlled by Republicans. Suzanne Jones Pranger wrote in her resignation letter that she was departing to pursue “professional opportunities working with a statewide campaign.”

Jones Pranger says that South Dakota Democrats have many great potential candidates like state Senate Minority Leader Billie Sutton. The party hired Jones Pranger in 2015.

Sutton tells the Argus Leader that he hasn’t made a final decision about running for governor or Congress - or neither.

Republicans hold every statewide office and supermajorities in both legislative chambers.
