According to the Rapid City Journal, former U.S. senators George McGovern and Jim Abourezk are hitting the road to campaign for state Sen. Scott Heidepriem, D-Sioux Falls, who is seeking his party’s nomination to run for governor next year.
"Our hope is that we can get folks out who have not participated in a while and rekindle an old spark in them to fight to take their government back and make their voices heard once again," McGovern was quoted as saying in a Rapid City Journal blurb based on a news release.
I saw something else recently about the two senators going to Aberdeen. I’m not sure if that ever happened. I’ll be interested to see if they bring their tour to Mitchell.
