A party with any hopes of competing next year in the Senate race should have candidates on deck. I’m looking, not seeing. And it’s shady enough in the dugout I can’t really see what’s going on. But there must be somebody in there, maybe doing something productive like corking a bat or fiddling with pine tar.
Please tell me there will be a Democratic slugger against Thune next year, and not a repeat of the embarrassing empty spot on the ballot where a Democratic candidate should have been in 2010 — the first time the guy who beat Daschle ran for reelection.
