        yep Rounds lining up all the tea party endorsements as a career establishment man. Do you Stace guys even think before you write?

          Even a lie can be one word, as you have proven “Truth” Endures. If you were actually interested in the truth, as your moniker implies, you’d try to do some checking before you throw out concise drivel.

      Not from South Dakota. He has never been involved with the Tea Party movement nor the Republican Party.

        So you are against ordinary citizens getting involved and trying to help their country…

        How Dare Ravnsborg! (being sarcastic of course)

        I think it is refreshing.

        Plus you can’t have it both ways Stace; you rail against Rounds for being a corrupt career politician, but then someone who is not you attack also.

        Oh that’s right you attack all Republicans and have press conferences with a Democrat!

          Good post. These types think that Nelson is the anointed one; well, look how that worked out with McCain and Dole. If Nelson can’t win on his ideas, maybe he should just drop out instead of attacking the other candidates.

        And you know all these “facts” how? I understand he wasn’t born in South Dakota, but is that a prerequisite for running for office to try to represent the people of South Dakota? Where did he attend law school, where did he settle down, where has he been since he got his J.D.? South Dakota, and he therefore is eligible to run for Senate. I know a lot of people born in South Dakota and raised here that would be much more comfortable in New York or California, so this isn’t a meaningful reason to dismiss Jason. Try again.

    Not news. Rounds pummels all challengers in primary.

    All 722 TEA Party members are mad as wet hens. Organize behind Howie. Stace brings over his 17 followers.

    Pressler bleeds off all the little old blue haired ladies left in the state and a few of their husbands who are still living.

    Weiland continues to get a lot of money from out of state and mounts a very mean, but credible campaign against Rounds, using Dick Wadhams strategies that he did not have to pay for.

    Could it be that Weiland “takes back” South Dakota? Stay tuned. This thing hasn’t even started yet…

    This isn’t a tea party group, this is the same Ken Crow who fronts the other online facebook program.

    What a joke.

    I’ve never heard of these Tea Party groups and honestly there is like 3 to 4 really large ones that are actually I’ve heard of and current or former professional politico’s run them. Those are the only ones that have the $ to really do anything

    Im so excited to know that Roundsberg will be speaking at the local tea party groups and getting involved in the grass roots of South Dakota politics… Except he hasn’t in the past, but I will be naive and pretend he will. Its tough to watch Rounds using a veteran to run against another veteran, not exactly a fan of friendly fire.

        I truly laughed out loud, but it wouldn’t surprise me if Pressler-Stace would be next.

        This race seems to be think of something outlandish that would never happen in a regular race and then it happens in this one! Stace needs a couple more for me to round out my top 10 list of things that by themselves would make him unelectable and he has 6 solid ones so far.

        Thanks again for the laugh!

    I can see why Jason or anyone else would not go to a tea party meeting here. I would consider myself tea party, but the one here in SD is a joke. I have gone to meetings out of state and like night and day. Not so conspiracy oriented, what a concept!

    I would not want to be at a meeting with such great state leaders as Stace Gordon Howie ( if in the party, its getting hard to tell) and Lora Hubbel, are you kidding me?

    You do realize that this is an online website, not an actual organized group, and it is the same as the other online website that he claimed an endorsement from???

    This isn’t even astroturf, this is astrocyberspace.

        It would be like Pat’s campaign store and then SDWC endorsing a candidate.

        Hey! Whatever it takes to prop up Roundsdecoy and fool people into thinking he is a viable candidate!
