From South DaCola this afternoon comes a rumor that Ann Tornberg’s name has come up as potentially being the Dem’s answer to otherwise giving John Thune a historic 2nd Bye:
Over lunch, the rumor mill gets a going. The latest is that Ann Tornberg (or a close relative) are going to put their hat in the ring to run against Thune.
HA HA HA HA HA HA HA…. (continue laughing for a few minutes)…
What that tells us is that, despite promises, Ann Tornberg can not find anyone to run for the office. So, in order to fulfill her own boast that there will be an opponent, she may get stuck with it herself. Of course, that raises the question of how much of party resources she’s going to divert from real candidates to accomplish it?
But still, that’s pretty darned funny.
