U.S. Senate Candidate and State Representative Stace Nelson released a statement today on his opposition to the 'Common Core Standards State Initiative (CCSS). "Over the past several months, as CCSS is being implemented across SD, concerns among parents and educators have grown exponentially.

Word has it Senator Rand Paul (R-KY) is reaching out specifically to evangelicals and other social conservatives. While he shares many of his father Ron Paul's libertarian ideas, he describes himself as more of a traditional conservative.

"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended.
