I won’t get to vote for Scyller Borglum for U.S. Senate: she’ll be in her Republican primary against incumbent Mike Rounds, but I’ll be busy picking between Clara Hart and Dan Ahlers in the Democratic primary.
However, I can give three holiday reasons I like Scyller Borglum.
First, a casual review of Borglum’s campaign Facebook feed over the last couple months doesn’t show Borglum running any of the obvious Trumpist nonsense with which she launched her campaign in July. You’re smarter than Trumpism, Scyller—keep running toward the light!
Second, speaking of running, Borglum takes her new purple (!) shoes and runs eleven miles in Badlands slop:
Third, Borglum also runs a Mac on the road:
It’s still too bad Borglum is running in the Republican primary, where the Rounds machine will crush her. The only way she’ll get to run in November and give everyone a chance to vote for her is to take out an independent petition next week and run under no party banner. (Think about it, Scyller!)
