Land Rush for Tim Johnson’s U.S. Sentate Seat

A collective NOOOOOOOOOOO is coming from South Dakota Democratic Party Headquarters as Huron Lawyer and former legislator Ron Volesky mulls a run for U.S. Senate. On the state level, it’s presumably against what Democrats would prefer.  You can read the text of Volesky’s announcement here.

Conventional wisdom would say that no primary for Rick Weiland is the optimum avenue to election. As a result the way is clear for the candidate to form their message while the opposition party runs itself ragged.

A stride or two away from the normal could reap benefits, also. From essentially late March through early June all you will hear will be the Republican drum beat. Without a primary, the Democrats would not even register the shake of a tambourine for almost three months. Even though others can’t vote in the primary, there is no restriction on listening to a message.

As of this writing (of course things may have changed in the last 5 minutes) four Republicans and one Independent are in the race along with the lone Democrat. To be fair, Volesky announced he is considering a run. Whether he will actually run depends on the amount of legal tender he can accumulate.
