Graves Will Not Run For SD Legislature

Mitchell Schools Superintendent Joe Graves has decided not to run for the state legislature.  He gave no reason for his decision.  In September, Graves announced during a Mitchell School Board meeting that he intended to run for the legislature as a Republican in District 20.  All of the seats in the South Dakota Legislature are up for grabs in 2014.  District 20 Representative Lance Carson of Mitchell is term limited in the House and cannot run for re-election.
