While Team Bosworth considers propaganda and legal strategies, real U.S. Senate candidate Rick Weiland sticks with the basics. Tomorrow morning Weiland launches an eight-day West River tour, including the Rosebud, Pine Ridge, and Cheyenne River reservations. Weiland plans to hit 57 towns; here's the list from his press release:
Platte, Dallas, Colome, Wood, White River, Mission, Rosebud, St. Francis, Martin, Batesland, Porcupine, Kyle, Pine Ridge, Oelrichs, Rapid City, Hermosa, Fairburn, Buffalo Gap, Hot Springs, Edgemont, Pringle, Custer, Summerset, Sturgis, Lead, Spearfish, Belle Fourche, Fruitdale, Nisland, Newell, Mud Butte, Maurine, Faith, Red Elm, Dupree, Eagle Butte, Isabel, Firesteel, Timber Lake, Trail City, Mobridge, McLaughlin, Walker, McIntosh, Watauga, Morristown, Caldron, Thunder Hawk, Lemmon, Meadow, Bison, Prairie City, Reva, Buffalo, Camp Crook, Redig and Castle Rock.
If Weiland can get 22 signatures in each town, he'll have enough signatures to make the ballot just from this tour. Of course, in some of those towns, I'm not sure one can find 22 Democrats.
