Election 2008: South Dakota

South Dakota is home to Mount Rushmore, Republicans and a populist streak that sometimes overcomes the GOP nature of the state.

President: Senator Obama may want to use the state for a photo op but he has little chance of winning it in November.

Safe Republican

Senate: Incumbent Senator Tim Johnson (D) is something of the Mark Phelps of politics in South Dakota. Two years ago he nearly died due to bleeding in his brain. Since then, his recovery has been slow but he has earned the admiration of many in the state. He should have little trouble beating State Representative Joel Dykstra.

Safe Democrat

House: Incumbent Stephanie Herseth Sandlin (D) should have little trouble in November.
