I just traveled back and forth across most of South Dakota in the past four days, from Rapid City to Sioux Falls, then down to Sioux City and beyond. As I traveled along I noticed that Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate had a lot of signs up along the I-90 and I-29 corridors. I'd have to say there were about a half-dozen going each way along I-90 running east-west, and two or three at least each way going north-south along I-29.
It is no accident that rhetoric about race has been ramping up at a time when racial politics can be the key determinant for control of the Senate this year. Can racism really be as rampant in America as all the current rhetoric implies?
Former Governor and now U.S. Senate Candidate Mike Rounds screwed up in 2010, and how he's busy trying to put a bandaid on his mistake. The killer of Debbie Martines and her unborn child had been locked away without possibility of parole. Now, thanks to Mike Rounds, Debbie Martines' family must endure parole hearings every eight months to keep him locked up.
Highway 44 in Rapid Valley is becoming the "Gordon Howie Highway"! Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate signs continue to appear along this major thoroughfare through one of the most populated areas in South Dakota.
David Montgomery has a very interesting post at the Argus Leader about the ideological gap of Democrat versus Republican candidates in several U.S. Senate races.

Last night I noticed that I had started seeing Gordon Howie for U.S. Senate signs popping up around Rapid Valley. Today I got a picture of the third one I was not able to capture last night, plus a fourth that I saw anew today.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the party over to the so-called moderates wouldn't make any sense at all." - Ronald Reagan, Nov. 10, 1964
