WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2002 Challenging the outcome of South Dakota's key senate race due to alleged Indian voter fraud wasn't the idea of Congressman John Thune (R). That's the message Thune's campaign is pitching, according to David Kranz of The Sioux Falls Argus Leader.

News accounts now say a total of six counties are being targeted, all on or near reservations. Get the Story:
