A Prediction, A Hope, And A Fear About Tomorrow's Primary

First, the prediction: Kristi Noem will defeat Marty Jackley to win the Republican nomination for governor.

Second, the hope: Dusty Johnson will win the nomination for the House of Representatives. The fact that Shantel Krebs and Neal Tapio both base their candidacies solely on the fact that they want to go to Washington to help Donald Trump is troubling. I can remember a time when Republicans were conservatives who believed that representatives went to Washington  to represent the people of their state not the leader of their political party.

Finally, the fear: the Marsy's Law "fix" will win. The merits of the amendment are dubious at best. However, having a so-called "victims bill of rights" that prevents victims from using the court system to insure those rights are protected is ludicrous.

Agreed on all counts.

Mpat,

Thanks for stopping by. I suspect that you have forgotten more about politics than I will ever know. Feel free to correct any egregious errors in logic
