The campaign of US Senator Mike Rounds wasted no time in lobbing back at the Scyller Borglum for Senate campaign after the State Representative’s US Senate announcement tour.
In a fundraising e-mail sent this afternoon, a fundraising letter from Rounds spokesman Rob Skjonsberg made few bones as to how they intend to address the challenge:
The e-mail holds out Rounds’ bonafides citing that “Mike is one of 38 U.S. Senators to support President Trump more than 90% of the time and he is one of the most conservative senators from the 2014 class.”
Referring to the Borglum campaign as a “challenge from the left” the campaign characterized Borglum as “a one-term state legislator, who moved to South Dakota four years ago.”
The e-mailed message continued blasting Rounds’ opponent, stating “the challenger who is attacking Mike has a failing scorecard with multiple, conservative statewide organizations,” citing scorecards from mainstream South Dakota Republican groups such as the Family Heritage Alliance and Americans for Prosperity. They also included a recent scorecard from fringe Rapid City group “Citizens for Liberty.”
And that’s just day 2 of the campaign for US Senate.
