I’m sure at some point between now and the general election, Fred Deutsch, Spencer Cody, and the other fine folks at South Dakota Right to Life will give me both barrels, reload, and fire again to try keeping me from winning the District 3 Senate seat.
So before we start throwing punches, permit to offer South Dakota Right to Life my thanks for citing me as an authority on conservative politicians in their 2016 primary election voter guide, an insert in their Summer 2016 LifeFacts newsletter. Scroll down to page 4 and SDRTL’s assessment of the District 19 GOP Senate primary contenders, former State Representative Stace Nelson and fresh-faced SDSU graduate Caleb Finck:
SDRTL cites Nelson’s legislative record. Then, apparently lacking any authoritative statement from Finck himself, SDRTL relies on Dakota Free Press to provide a reliable assessment of the newcomer to its conservative readership.
Who says I can’t reach across the aisle and win the trust and cooperation of folks who disagree with me? Come on, Fred, Spencer—work with me!
p.s.: SDRTL does cite a certain conservative South Dakota blog that pretends to educate voters, but only to obtain a direct quote from candidate Todd Kolden in the comment section, not to cite any analysis from that other blog itself.
