I am running to help take back our country from the big money interests who have hijacked it, and turned it against us. Every generation of Americans has a fight they must win. I believe this is ours.
Our country has been hijacked by big money special interests. Big corporations have embedded themselves into our government, wasting our tax dollars with bloated contracts and buying off the people who are supposed to be giving us a fair shake.
We, the undersigned, respectfully request that members of Congress and candidates for Congress take and respect the following Responsible Government Pledge:
"I hereby pledge that, if elected to represent you, I will never vote to shut down your government, or to place your government in default, in order to force it to act, or to prevent it from acting, on unrelated issues."
If you need a clear difference between Rick and the GOP establishment, you now have one. He is the only candidate that would have voted to prevent the shutdown.
Rick Weiland spoke to a crowd of over 120 people in Sioux Falls last night and one thing is clear, he gets it.
