Some Democratic congressional candidates in danger of losing are going after their own leaders in Washington rather than their Republican opponents. And for at least one candidate, the strategy appears to be working, The Hill reports
. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin recently issued an ad criticizing Washington for viewing her sate as merely “flyover country.”
The South Dakota Democrat says in the ad: “They look down from 30,000 feet and don’t care about our agriculture, the Second Amendment, or our fiscally conservative values.”
The most recent Rasmussen poll shows Herseth Sandlin with 47-45 percent edge over Republican Kristi Noem. That compares with a 51-42 percent Noem lead in Rasmussen’s August poll.
