Krebs: Bernie Sanders has yet to file in South Dakota

The Associated Press has called Missouri for former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton as President Barack Obama called on supporters to back her.

Today on Viewpoint University South Dakota Sec. of State Shantel Krebs mentioned that Senator Bernie Sanders of Vermont has yet to contact her office to be included on the Democratic Party primary ballot.

Failed Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson said Pres. Obama was raised white.

Mike Rounds and GOP leadership: "see? Obama isn't colored: let's block his black ass!"
Just before lunchtime Tuesday, Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee announced that, during a closed-door huddle with Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, they had reached a consensus not to hold hearings on any Supreme Court nominee that President Obama might put forward this year. As Larry Sabato, head of the University of Virginia Center for Politics, notes, the alternative was a full-blown confirmation battle, in which individual GOP members would have needed to take positions, and ultimately cast votes, on a flesh-and-blood nominee. “McConnell recognized, This can only divide us—‘us’ being Republicans,” says Sabato.

Ezra Klein says the national GOP is broken.
The GOP is already holding on by a string when it comes to their control of the Senate this year, given the number of seats they have to defend in states won by President Obama and the increasing likelihood of the party putting forth an incredibly unpopular Presidential candidate in Donald Trump.

A Democratic Senate confirmed Anthony Kennedy, Ronald Reagan's nominee to the Court in his last year in office and failing to confirm an Obama nominee could significantly increase voter turnout, which historically works against GOP.

4-4 decisions affirm the lower benches and an equally divided Court would uphold affirmative action, union rights and abortion protection.

Scalia's death is just one more teaching moment about why Democrats need to control the judiciary and should be a clarion call for Tom Daschle to get in South Dakota's US Senate race but he is all to cognizant that the state is a 77,184 square mile institution for the criminally unwell.

Catholic Rounds, rumored to be considering an exit from the US Senate, has colluded with his church to obstruct justice in prosecution of clergy crimes.

With hopes that Donald Trump will be elected president South Dakota's Republican US Senators are sandbagging Pres. Obama's choice for Associate Justice to the Supreme Court of the United States.

So, who is a President Donald Trump's nominee to the highest court in the land: Sarah Palin, Ted Nugent, Ted Cruz or Tom Cruise?
