Published 10/18/2010, The Daily Republic
A new Democratic-commissioned poll claims Scott Heidepriem and Ben Arndt are gaining ground in the gubernatorial race and Dennis Daugaard and Matt Michels are losing it.
According to the Democrats, the new poll shows Heidepriem now trails Daugaard 45-32 percent with 22 percent undecided.
“We think it’s a good sign,” said Heiedepriem campaign manager Steve Jarding. “This is a time when a lot of voters are starting to pay attention, particularly in a low-profile race.”
