I suppose that this wasn’t too hard to see coming:
Former Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin is considering running again for South Dakota’s seat in the House of Representatives, she said Wednesday.
A rematch against Rep. Kristi Noem, who beat Herseth Sandlin by two percent of voters in the Nov. 2010 election, is one of the options Herseth Sandlin is considering. She’s being encouraged to do so by national Democrats.
“Certainly an opportunity for me to serve South Dakota in elected office at some point, either in the near term or down the line, is something I’ll evaluate because of how much I enjoyed serving,” Herseth Sandlin said.
Did she really enjoy serving? Or, as is the case with too many of our elected officials, did she enjoy the power that came with the office (including the power to treat all too many of her constituents as though they could not do the math)?
If she does decide to move ahead with this option, I’m thinking the match will be harder fought than last time on both sides–considering that both will have federal votes to hide (or hide behind, as the case may be.)
Viva la competition!
