South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem got an emphatic victory when the Senate removed Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg from office by convicting him of impeachment for killing a pedestrian with his car.

She can name his replacement, discredit a one-time adversary who had investigated her and claim political independence because she held a fellow Republican accountable.

GOP Chairman Dan Lederman says the party can’t charge money because it would constitute an illegal “poll tax.” The convention is June 23-25.
