May Day, May Day—Sioux Falls has affirmed its craving for patriarchal Republican corporatist theocracy:
The South Dakota Republican Party, which threw in heavily for TenHaken, saw this nonpartisan mayoral race as an opportunity to crush the “Blue Wave” hopes of the South Dakota Democratic Party, which threw in heavily for Jolene Loetscher, who lost to TenHaken 37% to 63%:
In her concession speech, Loetscher reminded voters that the Republican chosen one outraised her 4 to 1. Loetscher’s defeat reminds Democrats that we can’t keep getting outraised 4 to 1. If we want a blue wave, we need a green wave.
