Blogging on the Radio: Republicans Call Each Other Liberals!

Patrick Lalley and I took another swing at offering South Dakotans the smartest political radio in the state yesterday. Lalley invited me onto the KSOO airwaves for our regular Tuesday 4 p.m. conversation, this time to discuss the Citizens for Liberty conservative scorecard, the new May/Nelson Conservative Republican Caucus, and the wild tangle accusations of “liberalness” that Shantel Krebs and Dusty Johnson are throwing at each other.

Our portion of the program begins at 34:40:

Lalley says he’ll let me blog on his radio show again next week, Tuesday, Primary Day, at 4 p.m., just four hours before the last polls close in South Dakota. Stay tuned for our last-minute predictions on who wins the primary! (Right now, I say Marty Jackley, Dusty Johnson, and Mark Milbrandt, plus Amendment Y passes somewhere in the 70s.)

    No women expected to win SD’s GOP primaries.
    That’s pretty much par for the GOP course.

    Democratic Women are winning about 75% of the contests they’ve entered, and they’re competing everywhere. The number of GOP women running is much lower and so is their win rate, around 25%. No surprise. GOP seems to become more anti women every election cycle. And women know cycles! 😁

    Sorry, Debbo. The Democrats have so far fielded only one statewide female candidate, and she has to face down a better-funded, more experienced male contender for attorney general. We also didn’t get any female candidates here in District 3.

    I should count up how many women each party has fielded for Legislative races….
