The Sioux Falls Argus Leader

The Sioux Falls Argus Leader reports that the South Dakota Senate race between Tim Johnson and John Thune is heading for a recount on November 25. Johnson ended up with about a 500 vote margin. Reader C.S. urges us not to give up on Thune. He tells us that, with three precincts left to count, Thune was up by more than 800 votes. But the three precincts were all in Shannon County on one of the Indian reservations. After they were counted, the tally shifted by more than 1,300 votes. Don’t worry, Mr. S., even if Trunk and I were inclined to forget about this one, the South Dakota Rocket Man would never let us. Keep us posted and we’ll keep posting.
