Matt Varilek is hitting the campaign trail with his self titled “Meet Matt” Tour.
In the coming weeks, I’ll be criss-crossing South Dakota as part of my “Meet Matt” Tour. Each stop on the tour will feature a “meet and greet” event that is free and open to the public. From Yankton to Aberdeen, Brookings to Rapid City, and lots of places in between, I hope to be in your area in the very near future.
After speaking to several Democratic friends, I came to the conclusion they are about as excited over Varilek’s candidacy as watching paint dry. My impression is that Varilek will have a harder time gaining the support of individual Democrats than he did locking down Johnson, Daschle or Hildebrand. Maybe they’ll vote for him in the primary, but it doesn’t sound like they’ll do it enthusiastically.
