Here’s an issue where Senator Rounds has broken from his South Dakota colleagues in Washington. Apparently, he’s one of two Republicans in the US Senate who is offering a dissenting opinion on the estate tax: The party’s leaders included estate-tax repeal in the tax-overhaul framework they released last week.

But now? Nada. Y…

I received a unique mailer today from the Dusty Johnson campaign for a big fundraiser in Sioux Falls later this month. Why is it unique? I’ll just “pop it up.” The postcard sized mailing was tabbed and sealed, which has the user pull it apart to find… It’s actually a pop-up mailer.  I suspect on per piece basis it was quite expensive, but if you’r emailing to a limited universe of big money donors, it’s Continue Reading …
