From the Mitchell Daily Republic comes a letter to the editor – the Sunday before the election – scolding State Senate candidate Stace Nelson for his attacks on outgoing State Senator Bill Van Gerpen:
I believe District 19 voters remember, as I do, Mr. Nelson’s refusal to support the Republican nominee for U.S. Senate after he was soundly defeated. I believe they remember how offensive and childish he acted while representing us. His comments in various newspapers, brochure and postcard mailings are a lot of hot air with no substance. Stace is for Stace, not District 19 voters.
