The only declared Democrat running for the U.S. Senate in South Dakota is gaining some support.
Former U.S. Senate Majority Leader Tom Daschle has endorsed the Rick Weiland in his 2014 U.S. Senate Campaign.
The announcement came in an e-mail sent to South Dakota Democrats and Independents.
Weiland, a former Daschle staff member, says he is proud to be supported by the former Senator.
Weiland announced earlier in May that he was seeking the Democrat Party's nomination for the U.S. Senate. The only other declared candidate in South Dakota is former Governor Mike Rounds, a republican.
