I'm not the extremist, you're the extremist.
KELO-land.com is reporting on the Adelstein/Schwiesow Senate race in Rapid City, served up with another side of trash-talking by the incumbent Senator against his opponent. And of course, abortion is dominating the issue:
Elli Schwiesow would have voted for the abortion bill. She says she's the more conservative republican who reflects the party's platform.Read it all here.
Schwiesow says, "I've always had a servant's heart and I think I can serve the people in my district and the state of South Dakota well."
Schwiesow says she too talks to voters about things like schools and property taxes, but her stance on abortion gets a lot of attention.
She says, "I care for all children despite the circumstances they were conceived in. I just love children. There are no unwanted children."
And even though they hold differing opinions, both candidates say their positions on the issue are connecting with voters.
Adelstein says, "It's gotten a lot of attention state wide because she's the most extreme opponent, no abortion under any circumstances and I was a leader in trying to get amendments for health of the mother, rape and incest."
Schwiesow says, "I'm proud of the governor and I'm proud of our state legislators. 67 percent of legislators voted for that bill and I'm proud of them."
