Howie: Strongly Disagree
Howie will begin a tour of the State this week, to meet with supporters. "We will have plenty of our bumper stickers with us," he said. "It looks like we may have to re-order sooner than we thought."
"We are having fun delivering our message to South Dakota. While we are certainly dealing with serious issues, I think it is good to enjoy the process," Howie said. "Besides, what could be more fun than winning, when it means doing the right thing for our State and our Nation?"
Weiland has the support of his onetime boss, Tom Daschle, the former Senate majority leader (also a South Dakota Democrat), and of the party's more liberal base. But his candidacy has upset some in the Democratic establishment. Many South Dakota Democrats are hoping for a centrist to compete in a state where the number of registered independents has increased over the past five years. Daschle said he believed that Weiland would be able to earn the establishment's support. "I've been through this hundreds of times--a candidate has to prove himself or herself before they get support of the [Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee]. I believe Rick will be able to do that."
