Good for Wismer, hope she picks Herseth to be her number 2Bob Mercer caught my enthusiasm for Jerry's idea:
And here’s what we don’t know yet: Who will be Susan Wismer’s running mate? There was an intriguing suggestion Tuesday night by a Democratic activist that former U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin might be the perfect choice. Consider that over coffee today.Difficult to imagine a more formidable ticket for South Dakota Democrats in November. As Lieutenant Governor, Rep. Herseth Sandlin could hold her current position as legal counsel for Raven Industries in Sioux Falls and not have to live in Pierre, ghastly as it is.
Imagine how much fun it would be to watch SHS kick the tar out of South Dakota's current Lt. Governor in a debate and to have her presiding over the legislature.
If this blogger is not mistaken, Jerry and his wife hosted Senator Hillary Clinton when she was campaigning in Rapid City during the 2008 presidential primary.
Wismer carried Lawrence County: a testament to the power of women there and to the local party chair, Sherry Bea Smith.
Low Democratic turnout was unsurprising as many regular voters registered as Republicans: clear evidence of that was Lora Hubbel's strong showing, the historic indifference among tribal rezidents for midterm elections and Jason Gant's likely criminal malfeasance as Secretary of State. FWIW: ip has a huge rez following and actively recruited people who regularly vote in those counties to register as GOP.
Wismer/Fire Thunder or Wismer/Killer sure would make for awesome campaign materials.
Please join me and send Rep. Wismer some money.
@larry_kurtz come on @SoDakDems, min wage is on ballot this year. That should be HUGE motivation to get Dem/Indy support to the pols in Nov
