THE SENATOR FROM D.C.:

Thune: D.C. tax break shows Daschle out of touch (Jon Walker, 10/21/2004, Argus Leader)

Republican candidate John Thune said Wednesday that Democratic Sen. Tom Daschle's participation in a tax break on housing in Washington, D.C., shows that his opponent has lost touch with South Dakota.

"It ties in to the very theme of the campaign all along," Thune said in a phone interview from Garretson. "Tom Daschle is a lot more about Washington than he is about South Dakota. He's willing to declare Washington his principal place of residence for a $288 tax break."

Thune appears to have run a good campaign. And blogs have helped to offset the pro-Daschle MSM in SD. Not clear that Thune will defeat Daschle but definitely looking possible right now.

Bush's massive win in SD will pull Thune over the edge by a comfortable margin.

Alas, Daschle will probably steal it. Like Johson did two years ago.
