Mike Rounds for South Dakota Senator 2014? Give your thoughts.

 

Rumors are very high that Former Governor Mike Rounds (R-South Dakota) plans to run for Senate in 2014 for the seat of Senator Tim Johnson (D-South Dakota). He will either run against him or if Senator Johnson’s retires, an open seat.

He has announced an exploratory committee:

I’m still busy researching on Governor Rounds, whether he meets conservative standards or not.

Those are some positives. There are some negatives though:

PLEASE NOTE: I am not endorsing him nor supporting him today. Especially since he hasn’t declared a run…this would be ridiculous. I do want to start a conversation, so we can share views on him.
