Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Rick Weiland, of Sioux Falls, speaks during an open forum Tuesday night at LifeQuest in Mitchell. During the forum, Weiland presented his positions on topics like health care, support for raising South Dakota’s minimum wage and, the basis for his “Take It Back” campaign, taking back influence from what he referred to as big money’s influence in government that is creating a “rigged system.” “We need to have a middle class, and we’re losing the middle class,” he said. It was the last of his stops at area towns for the day, which included Fulton, Farmer, Spencer, Riverside, Woonsocket and Mitchell. Weiland has pledged to visit 361 towns in South Dakota during his campaign — all 311 incorporated and 50 of the unincorporated. (Candy DenOuden/Republic)
