Pressler Taps Support From Friends In Both Parties

Pressler Taps Support From Friends In Both Parties
Larry Pressler | December 2013

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

A lifelong Democrat who lost to former Republican U.S. Sen. Larry Pressler nearly a quarter century ago is working to help Pressler get his old job back.

USD Foundation president emeritus Ted Muenster has been circulating petitions in Vermillion this week to get Pressler on the 2014 ballot.

Muenster says he agrees with Pressler that both parties should get off their ideological high horses.

Muenster is one of several well-known political figures from both parties lending a hand. Former GOP state lawmaker Gene Abdallah and Rapid City economist and lifelong Republican Don Frankenfeld have also voiced support.

The election field currently features one Democratic nominee and five Republican candidates who will battle in a GOP primary. Pressler needs 3,300 signatures to get on the ballot as an independent.
