Like white on rice: Russell v. Rampelberg

In South Dakota's District 30, obese long-time State Representative Lance Russell says he's challenging sitting State Senator Bruce Rampelberg. Russell is term limited in the SD House. Russell noted today that Rampelberg “has enticed him into the race with less than conservative votes and positions he’s taken such as on medical marijuana, tax increases, and bills such as Rampelberg’s sponsorship of Democrat Bernie Hunhoff’s corporate income tax measure.”

At recent crackerbarrels cracker Russell has been slathering doom on heaps of gloom even as Rampelberg conducted a civil discussion in Pierre today while medical cannabis advocates told their stories.

Also from the Rapid City Journal:
A secretive religious group linked to national cases of polygamy and the marriage of underage girls may be expanding to the Edgemont area, and there may be little Fall River County officials can do. The property in question was part of the estate of Buddy Heck and was left to Doris Seabeck and to Carolyn Fines. Seabeck is Heck’s sister and is the personal representative of his estate. Seabeck signed the purchase agreement, which is being contested by Fines in the courts. The commissioners said that as Carolyn Fines is state’s attorney Lance Russell’s mother, there may be some conflict of interest on the county’s part.
In 2011 Russell was censured by the state's judiciary for leaking grand jury testimony.

Rampelberg has been credited with helping to save Ellsworth Air Force Base from being mothballed.

Conservative means never having to say you're sorry.
