Daschle formally endorses Weiland for U.S. Senate


Former US Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle (D-SD) formally endorsed Rick Weiland in the 2014 U.S. Senate campaign on Monday afternoon.

In an email to thousands of South Dakota Democrats and Independents, Daschle emphasized Weiland's determination to fight for ordinary citizens.  Here is an excerpt from the communication:

"But what stands out most to me about this man is not how he changed as he became successful, but rather how he has not changed.
The Rick Weiland I met as a student and the Rick Weiland I know today are one and the same, committed to a fair shake for ordinary folks and fiercely opposed to the hostile takeover of our government by powerful special interests.
That's why I will be supporting Rick Weiland.  Not because he is my friend, but because he is a friend of the things I fought for my entire time in Congress, the things Tim Johnson is still fighting for, and the things all three of us deeply believe will help the ordinary people of South Dakota

"I am proud to have Senator Daschle's support in this race.  The response to Tom's email has been incredible.  In the days and weeks ahead we will continue to announce statewide and national leaders as they join our effort," said Rick Weiland.
