"No big money!"
That was the message Saturday of South Dakota's democratic candidate for the 2014 U.S. Senate race.
Rick Weiland met with the public in Rapid City, the 96th stop on his road trip since July 19th; Weiland plans to visit all 311 South Dakota towns.
Weiland spoke to the public about his grassroots approach for the campaign.
Some of the topics brought up during a "Q and A" with the democrat included the Keystone X-L Pipeline, which he does not support.
Weiland also says although he agree's with some of President Obama's Affordable Healthcare Reform Act, he believes people should have the option to buy medicare.
Weiland says his approach will help him gain the much needed swing votes, since South Dakota is primarily a red state.
"So when I talk about how congress is no longer on the side of everyday citizens that it's more on the side of taking care of billionaires and big corporations, that resonates with people here in South Dakota," said Weiland. "And I'm talking about republicans independents and democrats."
Weiland lost a congressional race in 1996 to Senator John Thune and in 2002, when he was ousted by Stephanie Herseth Sandlin.
