Old Crankypants Liberal Republican Who Endorsed Obama Not Once But Twice Is Mounting an Independent Senate Campaign in South Dakota

South Dakota is one of those states that should be routinely electing two conservative Senators but which generally doesn't. With longtime Democrat Tim Johnson finally retiring, the state is a key battleground in the fight for control of the Senate.

But that won't be easy. A Libertarian candidate is drawing 11% of the vote.

And now, curiously enough, as the Democrats' political position deteriorates further, it gets even harder. An allegedly "moderate" former Senator, Larry Pressler, who endorsed Obama in both 2008 and 2012 (I guess he was very impressed by his first term!), is joining the race as well.

Geraghty notes the state is R+10. But even an R+10 state can go Democratic with not one but two challengers for the right-leaning vote.

Thanks to @drewmtips.
