The Madville Times starts the week with the Tea Party's Senate aspirant Gordon Howie; on Friday, we hang with great Democratic Congressional hope Corinna Robinson:

Robinson spoke to supporters in Brookings Friday. Among high points for voters, Robinson said the Keystone XL pipeline doesn't pass her risk analysis (environmental risk, a few temporary jobs, no ongoing benefit). She said she's pro-choice. And she said she plans to develop education as a significant plank of her campaign platform.

While she spent her evening hanging out with liberals like Toby and me, the conversation led to insights on how Robinson could and should reach out to conservatives, West River ranchers, and veterans who on meeting and grilling Robinson might find her sensible, get-the-job-done politics closer to their values than our current do-nothing, slow-on-the-uptake Congresswoman Kristi Noem. Go get 'em, Corinna!
