      Karen Wagner is married to Jim Doolittle and she has always been a Democrat. She must have registered Republican to have a chance to win in a very Republican district.

      I feel good about fink putting Nelson in his place. If fink doesn’t then senator greenfield will for conservatives.

    Yep – they’re still coming fast & furious. I’ll update again in a bit.

    Are they updating still tonight, Pat? How many days can we expect to see more results trickle in through the mail?

      Could you possibly include what towns/counties these districts represent? I am familiar with ones around where I live, but only the real politicos can tell you where each district is from.

    Why was Shantell in Sioux Falls making media appearances today if they needed all hands on deck for petitions? I guess I don’t understand.

    It is really good to see all those West River primaries. I used to think the Pennington Co. GOP was a gatekeeper on this process but maybe I was wrong about that.

      A lot of these damn tax and spend RINOs are getting primaries! Too bad everyone of them wasn’t facing one!

      The Democrsts have a great campaign platform to run from, all the corruption? All the taxing and spending?

        Kurt, it’s kind of disingenuous for you to throw around the RINO term, since you’re a libertarian.

    Senator Greenfield is not facing a primary like Nelson because he’s actually respected for his stalwart conservatism unlike Nelson.

      I have lost all respect for Greenfield. At a time when conservatives should be working together, he is posting juvenile comments like the above? Mr Powers, is there any truth to the rumors that Greenfield discussed with Caleb Finck primarying Stace Nelson?
