Despite the presence of Tim Johnson at the fundraiser in District 10, and the campaigning that Daschle already did for her, I'm still calling this one for the GOP hands down. That 2-1 GOP over DEM margin doesn't lie.

BIG hat tip to SD Watch who notes that a play has been developed based on the writings of Leonard Peltier: A play about convicted murderer Leonard Peltier? Whether it is good, bad, or indifferent, I don’t see it playing in South Dakota any time soon.

Despite Gordon Howie being the likely person whose name is going to be on the line, I'm told that …
