How bad is this
? (via Political Wire
Sounds pretty bad for Daschle. I assume most of the Native American vote has to be Dem. Also I had trouble understanding this quote:
Giago says he was going to run as a democrat against Daschle in the primaries, but he says this could be more damaging to Daschle if he gets a lot of the Indian vote.
Giago is the 3rd party candidate, of course. Does he want to damage Daschle? He also said:
Giago says Indian counties have suffered financially under Daschle's watch, and it's time to talk about all the issues like the Black Hills settlement, and what Giago calls this state's Achilles heel, racism. Giago says, "There's some issues that he keeps ducking, that Senator Tim Johnson keeps ducking, and I'm sure that John Thune is going to keep ducking. And I think some of these issues are important enough to the nine tribes in this state that we've got to get them on the table. We've got to talk about them. We can't pretend they aren't there."
So he doesn't like the Reps either. And electing them couldn't be any better.
Also, he has a newspaper? That's definitely not good.
Any SDakotans can clarify the import of all this?
