I was very solid on Dr. Bosworth at first: charismatic, charming, attractive, however, I'm skeptical now that she'll even make it out of the primary. She's been having money issues due to the burden of running a non-profit health clinic.

There's a blogger at a site called Madville Times who is an absolute zealot, and is committed to bringing Dr. Bosworth down. Every day its aspersions after aspersion. I fear as good as she may be, this race will look just like Virginia in 2012 (Rounds=Allen, Bosworth=Radtke)

Here's the website.

Stace Nelson appears to be more pure and more likely to be able to challenge Rounds. I don't see any reason why he shouldn't be the liberty candidate of choice.

Nelson has less baggage (the Che thing), experience in a State Upper House and is also polling higher.

Bosworth is the Nancy Mace of South Dakota, while Nelson's the Lee Bright.

The situation in SD is some what similar to that of SC and in SC I'd agree with you that the candidate with more experience seems to be the stronger one, but not in this case. Look at her FB page as an example of her recent surge in support, almost 75k likes with over 600k odd some people talking about her. It really makes her Che picture a non-story and because most of her potential baggage has been brought to light before her surge in support, its now irrelevant really. If its any representation of her support in SD, I would even say she will be polling ahead of Rounds when the next major poll comes out.

The baggage we know of has become irrelevant due to her dramatic increase in support I should say. I would like to know her stances on issues better personally, but I believe she has become the stronger candidate.

I follow her Facebook feed. She posts a lot of things that make me think she will be less liberty and more traditional conservative. I am probably going to drop her to a fellow traveler on my website.

Regardless, she would be a positive addition to the Senate.

She announced this week she had raised an impressive $315,000, second only to Mike Rounds (http://dakotawarcollege.com/so-how-do-the-candidates-stack-up-charting-the-gop-us-senate-field/), and more than Stace Nelson's $31,000 (http://dakotawarcollege.com/so-how-do-the-candidates-stack-up-charting-the-gop-us-senate-field/).

She also had a great interview with Steve Deace this week where she was very articulate about how the ACA has destroyed doctor/patient confidentiality. She even gave a shout-out to Rand Paul: http://stevedeace.com/headline/deace-show-podcast-01-29-14/

Hot damn. WAY second to Rounds, really. Again, money doesn't make or break it, but she'll need to step it up.

Beyond supporting liberty, I look at two things to determine if a candidate is serious: money and miles

How many miles has Stace Nelson and Annette Bosworth put on their vehicle crossing the state?
