Providing all the news we see fit to print since 2002!

OOPS! Well it seems that Chris Nelson name was not enough to get the Republican nomination to the House race. I thought for sure he had it in the bag. I guess you can't take anything for granted. I read once in Tip O' Neil's "Man of the House" that he lost his first election because he never asked his family and close friends to vote for him. A his mother advised him, "People like to be asked sometimes." Every politician could learn a little bit from Ma O'Neill, and maybe us voters could as well. Mr. Nelson sure learned it the hard way.
Kristi Noem moved ahead of Nelson and got the nomination.. She may not have moved me but she managed to get a few thousand voters off the couch. There are those who say she might actually have what it takes to unseat Herseth-Sandlin in November as well. Seems there is a movement out there dedicated to voting out incumbents, and she just may be one of the beneficiaries of that movement. Since nobody had the guts to go against Thune, this will be the race to watch in South Dakota. I know I'll be watching!
