Democratic Senate hopeful hosts musical campaign fundraiser

By  | 

He's South Dakota's Democratic candidate vying for a seat in the U.S. Senate. Saturday, Rick Weiland took a break from his cross-state travels to host a music-themed fundraiser for his campaign.

It was dubbed 'Rickstock,' and featured a handful of local musicians rocking out to benefit his bid for the Senate.
The congressional hopeful even took to the stage to belt out his spin on the Hank Snow classic, "I've Been Everywhere."
He says music just runs in the Weiland family.

Weiland says, "I've got a brother that plays the bass, a brother that plays the drums. I've got two daughters that are great singers. I've got two nephews that play very well. They're all going to be here tonight, and we're going to be playing under the stars here in Piedmont."

Weiland says he's entered round-two of his campaign pledge to visit every incorporated town across the Mt. Rushmore State.
He says, so far, he sits at about 500 town visits throughout South Dakota.
