As I’ve blogged before, I like Tom Daschle. He’s my Senator and was truly one of the few politicians I actually had a lot of respect for during the days I was covering them. But the upcoming race against John Thune appears to be affecting his public discourse already. According to the Rapid City Journal, Daschle “has no serious concerns about the lack of weapons of mass destruction.” (Via Dakota Today)
That is not a direct quote from Daschle and there’s no quotes in the story that really seem to support or contradict the assertion that is his position. If it is true, though, I don’t want Tom bailing on issues like this. That race is a no-brainer when it comes to voting but this is not encouraging.
Besides Tom, I just signed your nominating petition this morning!
