Nesselhuf, Thune Talk About Election Results

Nesselhuf, Thune Talk About Election Results
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

It's been a busy night at both party's headquarters.  Democrats and Republicans in South Dakota are closely watching results come in.

"Nationwide, it looks like it's going to be a great night for Democrats. In South Dakota, it looks like we're going to pick up some legislative seats if the early returns are to be believed. It looks like Referred Law 14 is going to go down.  It looks like Referred Law 16, which we put on the ballot, is going to go down, which are both wins for the people of South Dakota.  It looks like it's going to be a good night," Democratic Chairman Ben Nesselhuf said.

Although it looks like everyone at the Democratic event is having a good time, it's still early in the night.  That means most are still playing the waiting game.

"For political junkies like myself, it's going to be a long but exciting night.  It's going to be a late one, but it's what we do and what we love." Nesselhuf said.

Senator John Thune stopped by the KELOLAND News studio to talk about his experience with Mitt Romney on the campaign trail.

"We're watching these battleground states that are up for grabs and hoping that there's a pathway for Governor Romney.  I've traveled in most of those states in the last couple of weeks and it's just been so close; you could feel it out there," Thune said.

Thune is in South Dakota for election night and really isn't surprised that Romney has been declared the winner in the state, which is known for its conservative views.  But across the country, the vote has been swinging back and forth between Romney and President Barack Obama.

"There have been a few times throughout history where there have been some electoral misfires.  Who knows? Maybe this could be one of those years.  But there are still a lot of votes to count, a lot of it to come in yet, and we remain hopeful that whoever is the popular vote winner will also win the electoral college, and that that's Mitt Romney," Thune said.
