Indian vote eyed in race between Thune and Daschle
Wednesday, January 7, 2004

Former Congressman John Thune (R) on Monday announced his campaign against Sen. Tom Daschle (D-S.D.) this year.

Thune ran for Senate in 2002 but lost a close race to Tim Johnson, a Democrat. Indian voters carried Johnson to victory.

Johnson said Indian voters will play a key role in the Thune-Daschle contest. Johnson and other Democrats in the Senate have launched an initiative to register more Indian voters.
