Former United States Senate Majority leader Tom Daschle has officially endorsed Rick Weiland for the 2014 Senate race.
In a statement released on Monday, Daschle said:
I will be supporting Rick Weiland. Not because he is my friend, but because he is a friend of the things I fought for my entire time in Congress.
Daschle added that Weiland is committed to fighting with ordinary citizens and would continue Senator Tim Johnson's work in Washington.
