U.S. Senate candidate Rick Weiland has enlisted a new campaign adviser.
The Democrat on Monday announced that veteran political strategist Steve Jarding will serve as his senior adviser and spokesman for the remainder of the race.
Jarding has worked on statewide races in South Dakota, Nebraska and Virginia. He is a lecturer at Harvard University's Kennedy School of Government.
Weiland, a businessman and former staffer for Sen. Tom Daschle, is running for the seat being vacated by U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson, who will be retiring after serving South Dakota since 1997.
Weiland is running against independent Larry Pressler, former Republican Gov. Mike Rounds, and independent Gordon Howie.
