Rep. Jim Bolin (R-16/Canton) and I made some excellent TV today. Then he trash-talked me. What fun!
KELO TV’s Anna Peters invited Rep. Bolin and me to the downtown Sioux Falls studio to talk about Referred Law 19, the Incumbent Protection Plan. We sat down with Brady Mallory this morning to tape a segment for Sunday night’s Inside KELOLand. (What? It’s not live? I should have done my Craig Ferguson impression!)
I’ll let KELO broadcast the big show Sunday before we hash out the arguments here. But after nine minutes of spectacular clash (our mutual friend Leo will love this debate!), the red light winked off, we shook hands, shared mild pleasantries… and then, with an eye toward November 8, Jim said, Sorry, Cory, you’re not going to join the club.
Wishing the red light would wink back on, I said, See you in January, in Pierre.
Yes, said Jim. From the gallery.
Persistent cuss, that Jim. I look forward to doing more TV with Jim.
