Weiland To Enter US Senate Race

Weiland To Enter US Senate Race

South Dakota Democrat Rick Weiland has announced plans to seek his party’s nomination to run for the U.S. Senate next year.  Weiland, an ex-staffer for former Senator Tom Daschle, ran unsuccessfully for Congress in 1996.  The 54-year old Sioux Falls resident said he is running because congressional Republicans are trying to cut education programs and have proposed changes he believes would harm Social Security and Medicare.  Weiland joins former Republican Governor Mike Rounds in the race for Tim Johnson’s Senate seat.  Johnson will not run for re-election next year.
