Seeking to defeat Senate Democratic Leader Thomas Daschle for re-election in South Dakota, conservative publisher Jameson Campaigne of Ottawa, Ill., is soliciting funds to mail a book called "The Other Side of Tom Daschle" to every one of 290,000 households in his state.
The book is written by lawyer Talmage Ekanger, a Federalist Society member from Milbank, S.D., and is published by Campaigne's Green Hill Publishers. It purports to contrast South Dakota's conservatism with Daschle's record in Washington. Its chapters include "Abortion Any Time for Any Reason," "Daschle vs. Catholic Church" and "Waving the Homosexual Agenda."
Polls indicate that Daschle is in a close race for a fourth term with his Republican opponent, former Rep. John Thune.
