Tonight, the Rushmore PAC started a campaign to aid a candidate for a small local race for City Commission in Aberdeen, South Dakota.
And you might be asking “Why?”. We get involved in big races, we get involved in fierce races, we get involved in legislative races.
And here was a good public servant in no office of that type, Laure Swanson, in Aberdeen who was minding her own business, doing her job, and representing her district. All of a sudden, a liberal crusader who writes a a liberal attack blog, and spends many of his waking moments over the last half-decade attacking conservatives just because they are of a different party than he, decides to move into the state, into Ms. Swanson’s district, and run for the office to try take her out after living in the area an entire 6 weeks.
6 weeks? That just doesn’t sound right, does it?
So, we’re going to raise $1000 for her in solidarity. There’s no big reason behind it. Except that being involved in the political process, you get a sense of right and wrong. And it’s wrong for a bully to move into the district from out of state to try to take her out.
If you’re so inclined, we hope you’ll help us out on this. For no other reason than it’s the right thing to do.
