Kristi is headed to Asia: whither Bryon?
The campaign of Democrat Corinna Robinson, who is challenging [At-large earth hater Rep. Kristi Lynn Arnold] Noem, raised $65,266 in the most recent reporting period; with $15,000 coming from PACs including the UPS Store and ExxonMobil. Much of the rest came from individual contributions. The Rapid City native ended March with $19,400 in cash on hand. She has total receipts of $109,000 during the election cycle. Of that, Robinson has donated $7,150 and loaned an additional $20,000 to her campaign, records show.
Ashley Heacock, campaign manager for Corinna for South Dakota, said the candidate is working aggressively to meet people across the state and spread her background and message and stress the need for funds to help her win in November. The more people find out about Robinson and learn about Noem's voting record in Washington, "they're going to put their hat in for Corinna," she said. Heacock pointed to a recent poll the campaign commissioned from RMA Research that showed only a third of those registered voters sampled in South Dakota thought Noem did a good or excellent job, with almost the same number saying her work was poor or very poor. RMA said that signals dissatisfaction with Noem and shows voters are interested in supporting an alternative, even if they are not familiar with the candidate.
