Diedrich Concedes Defeat
In a shocking announcement, South Dakota state Senator and Congresional candidate Larry Diedrich said that he would be happy to come within 5 percentage points of the Democratic candidate, Stephanie Herseth.
This is unbelievable. Diedrich seems to be putting expectations really low so he can spin a closs finish into big funding for his pending rematch against Herseth in November. We shall see.
If Herseth can hold on (which it looks like she will), that will make two Republican seats that Democrats have already picked up this year. The other was when Ben Chandler won in Kentucky back in Febuary.
