Fruits: Scene 2

Then, in 1994 I ran in the Republican primary for SoDak House of Representatives. Gordon Pederson, Helena Hassard, Tom Yancowsky and I contested for two nominations. I beat Yancowski; the only time I have ever received more votes than an opponent in an election. But, when there are two seats available and you come in third....

The picture below might sum up that race. If you click on the image, you'll get a larger version; then you can see that my constituency (spectators in the stands) has grown since the '92 election.
