The Philly Mag’s PhillyPost’s columnist discusses Thune’s potential as a Republican challenger to President Obama in 2012. Larry Mendte calls Thune “a charismatic speaker, a true conservative and politically astute.”
Favorable media coverage never hurts and certainly feeds the speculation game surrounding a Thune candidacy. It’ll continue to be fun to watch and see if Sen. Thune will be the one to break the SD presidency curse that has claimed other prominent Senators. Of course before he can break the curse, we’ll have to see if Sen. Thune catches the Presidential fever.
