Democrats stop in Mitchell, sounding an optimistic note
Published 11/02/2010, The Daily Republic
Democratic candidates are “sprinting to the finish,” according to Scott Heidepriem, the Democratic candidate for governor.
Heidepriem led a group of Democratic candidates who stopped Monday in Mitchell as part of a two-day “victory tour.”
Heidepriem said he feels all trends point to a win for him, making him the first Democrat to be elected governor in South Dakota since Dick Kneip won the last of three elections in 1974. He and his running mate, Ben Arndt, are running against Lt. Gov. Dennis Daugaard, the Republican candidate, whose running mate is state Sen. Matt Michels.
