This flyer has been put together for the Independent running in District 19 State House against Republicans Kent Peterson and Kyle Schoenfish:
That campaign piece looks familiar. I wonder where I’ve seen that before….
With the Roger Hofer piece, I note that the Liberal Democrat Blog is pointing out this morning that “a source” is telling Cory Heidelberger that 10,000 Hofer flyers are being inserted in newspapers in District 19.
Along those lines, let me relate a personal tale that took place recently.
Because of some personal stuff I have going on, on Friday the 19th, I had to set up a relay of campaign materials. I had to move a truck load to Sioux Falls, where my daughter picked it up. In turn, she delivered it to another person, who was dropping it off at the Armour Newspaper, who prints most of the newspapers in that region, so most newspaper inserts are dropped off there.
Later that afternoon, I got a call from the last person in the relay, who said laughingly that he was ready to drop them off, but had to ask if he needed to drive around the block a few times, because Senator Stace Nelson was there arranging something in the newspaper’s business office.
Now.. I’m not saying that Stace had anything to do with arranging the publishing and inserting of the flyers for the non-Republican candidate. It could have all been innocent. Yep. Completely innocent.
But, considering he was the primary person trying to deny Kristi Noem her choice for Lt. Governor, and now a piece for the person attacking the House Republicans in his legislative district is being distributed after his visit to the paper. And the two pieces are virtually the same…
…it’s an interesting coincidence. Don’t you think?
