Weiland Staying In The Race

Rick Weiland says he is in it for the duration. His announcement that he was running for the Senate seat now held by Senator Tim Johnson caught many by surprise. Many democrats had pinned their hopes on either former Congresswoman Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin, or current US Attorney Brendan Johnson…

Weiland says he plans to show up across the state, with his low budget approach…

Weiland says his request to republican candidate Mike Rounds to resist the urge of a big money campaign is not a sign of weakness…

Weiland was a former staffer for Senator Tom Daschle, and made two previous unsuccessful runs for the US House.
