UPDATE: I was off a bit, Salamun wins Rapid City mayor.

I will admit I knew about the election, but not until about 5 minutes ago I decided to research the candidates. I know nothing about any of them except for what I read today.

Just based on donations, I would give the victory to Estes, but since this is a plurality election, I think the three other men running would steal votes from Estes giving the victory to Armstrong (who is the only woman running).

I guess we will see.

Either way, these two will likely be in spots 1 and 2. Estes seems like a moderate businessman while Armstrong tends to be moderate to progressive.

I think it would be quite an upset tonight if Armstrong squeaks by.

    So, you’re saying he’s a former money changer, knows how to use a gun, and might be into gospel prosperity, huh? This ought to be good. I also noticed he has a beard. Often civic/political leaders in Rapid sport a beard. I think it’s part of their never-ending “Days of ’76” promotion that they seem to have going on throughout the Hills, or else it makes it easier for the Rapid mayor to fit in on “Rapid Day” during the Sturgis bike rally week…. One of the two, I’m sure.
