Two candidates join to criticize GOP front-runner

Posted:

       SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) _ Two U.S. Senate candidates on opposite sides of the political spectrum called a joint news conference Monday to protest the Republican frontrunner's out-of-state fundraising.
 
       Democratic candidate Rick Weiland and Republican state Sen. Stace Nelson stood side-by-side accusing former Gov. Mike Rounds of trying to buy the race, but the focus of their statements diverged greatly.
 
       Weiland talked about the dangers of big money's influence on the political process.
 
       Nelson called out Rounds for ducking debate opportunities, then used the platform to segue into a criticism of Rounds' record as a conservative.
 
       Rounds took in more than $516,000 in campaign contributions during the final three months of 2013, far outpacing his fellow candidates in the race.
 
       Rounds campaign spokesman Rob Skjonsberg says strong grassroots support has led to fundraising success.
