Democrat leader says party can compete and win

Published 12/06/2010, The Daily Republic

Democratic candidates were pounded on Nov. 2, as Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin was defeated, all statewide candidates lost in landslides and most legislative candidates were beaten. The party couldn’t even field a candidate to run against Sen. John Thune, R-S.D.
The losses were stinging, Nesselhuf said, but they also seemed to awaken something in Democrats across South Dakota.
