Where The Politician Hits The Astroturf?

It may not make the same sound as rubber hitting the road, but shoe leather on astroturf is not necessarily silent. Earlier tonight, Representative Stace Nelson (R-19) re-tweeted the following:

The link takes readers to the Senate Conservative Fund, the group with no love for former Governor Mike Rounds. The SCF site contends:
Republicans in South Dakota have a right to know that Mike Rounds:
  • Expanded state bureaucracy by 1,500 employees
  • Supported higher cigarette, alcohol, and telephone taxes
  • Supported higher Internet taxes
  • Supported Medicare Part D prescription drug entitlement
  • Supported the TARP bailout program for Wall Street banks
  • Supported Obama's "stimulus" spending
  • Supported the fiscal cliff deal, raising taxes on 80% of Americans
  • Refuses to rule out raising federal taxes in the future
Were one given to rank speculation, one might begin to believe that Rep. Nelson is getting ready to challenge Rounds for the Republican nomination for the open U.S. Senate seat.
