South Dakota’s senior US Senator and political juggernaut John Thune’s campaign organization continues to be the envy of any other campaign in South Dakota, as he raises $414,038.18 this quarter, against only $147,948.15 of expenditures.

But the big number is his cash on hand, at $12,791,914.71, is a sign that Democrats have not been able to mount more than a nominal challenge to Thune since his defeat of Tom Daschle.

Senator Thune is up again for election in 2022. And with this much cash on hand, banked over a series of non-races, much like MC Hammer he’s signaling to state democrats who might be thinking of jumping into a contest with him that “U Can’t Touch This.”
