Kristi Noem — party operatives believe they have the right mix of factors to beat the Congresswoman this year. Democrats, meanwhile, are already trying to paint Noem — an anti-abortion, pro-gun, anti-gay-marriage conservative — as a right-wing partisan. They also note that Herseth Sandlin survived a tough environment before, winning her first race in 2004, a very good Republican year. But that was before she had a Congressional voting record and before she owned the positive and negative ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
