NEVER TOO THUNE TO DREAM OF 60:

U.S. Chamber of Commerce targets Daschle (UPI, 8/20/04)

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce kicked off a campaign Friday to educate voters in South Dakota about Senate Minority Leader Tom Daschle.

Daschle's agenda for America, the chamber said, is "vastly different" from the needs of South Dakota.

"Daschle has pursued an agenda that is seriously out of step with the needs of his constituents," said Bill Miller, the chamber's political director. "At every opportunity, Tom Daschle has chosen to stand in the way of legislative reforms that would spur business investment, grow the economy, create jobs and improve access to healthcare."


Right now we're seeing the first signs of Democratic panic as they realize they can't win the presidency--just wait'll they realize how ugly the congressional races could get. Speaker Hastert already sounds confident about picking up as many as ten seats in the House and even cautious estimates have the GOP picking up two Senate seats.

Bush will win SD by 20 pts or more. For Daschle to win means that 10% of the population who voted for Bush then turned around and voted for his main rival Daschle. Daschle can certainly win given his seniority/clout/money but hopefully the voters of SD realize that what Daschle does in DC is different than what he says in SD.
