    "Paraguay: Alleged Hezbollah financier detained Wassim el Abd Fadel, a Lebanese with Paraguayan citizenship, faces human trafficking and narco-terrorism charges."  SNIPPET: "ASUNCIÓN, Paraguay – Wassim el Abd Fadel is behind bars inside Tacumbú prison in Asunción, Paraguay, as he awaits trial on human trafficking, money laundering and narco-trafficking charges. But Paraguayan authorities suspect the Lebanese with Paraguayan citizenship’s involvement in crime is much greater, which is why he’s being investigated for financing the terrorist organization Hezbollah. Fadel, 31, was arrested on Dec. 21 in Ciudad del Este, which is on the border shared by Paraguay, Brazil and Argentina, about...

    Black Hills Pioneer ^ | 2/1/11 | Wendy Pitlick
    LEAD -- Securing the future of the Sanford Lab is a top priority, Rep. Kristi Noem said Monday. Noem, who toured the lab's underground and surface facilities Monday morning in order to understand the project better, said she plans to work hard to make sure the lab receives the necessary funds to continue operating until a formal decision can be made about DUSEL construction. It is extremely important as far as the progress that has been made. It has been very encouraging and we are hoping that we can continue down that path and make sure that we're working toward...

    Rasmussen Reports ^ | October 22, 2010
    Republican Kristi Noem has moved slightly further ahead of incumbent Democrat Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin in South Dakotas election for the U.S. House of Representatives. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Noem, a state legislator, picking up 49% of the vote, while Herseth-Sandlin draws support from 44%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, and five percent (5%) are still undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) Earlier this month, Noem moved to a 47% to 44% edge after slipping behind in September. Since winning the GOP Primary in June, Noem has been slightly ahead of...

    NY Daily News ^ | 10/13/2010
    Move over Christine O'Donnell. The new Tea Party star and fund raising machine is Kristi Noem, a rancher, mother of three and GOP candidate for congress from South Dakota. Noem, 38, who's a state representative and relatively unknown on the national scene, has raised $1.1 million in the last three months more than any Republican congressional challenger in the U.S. and roughly twice as much as her Democratic incumbent opponent, U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, ABC News reported. In their quest to win back control of the House, Republicans have set their sights on Dems like Herseth-Sandlin,...

    Republican House candidate Kristi Noem raised twice as much money in the past three months as Democratic U.S. Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, giving Noem hundreds of thousands more dollars for the campaigns last weeks. Noem, who challenged her supporters in August to help her raise $1 million during the remainder of the campaign, met that goal with a $1.1 million third-quarter total. Herseth Sandlins campaign reported collecting about $550,000 in that same time. This was the second quarter in a row Noem has outraised Herseth Sandlin. Noems campaign manager Joshua Shields said the third-quarter fundraising is evidence Noem is doing...

    ABC News ^ | 10/12/10 | JONATHAN KARL and GREGORY SIMMONS
    If money is any indication, the hottest Republican House candidate in the country is Kristi Noem. The 38-year-old rancher has raised more campaign cash than any Republican house challenger in the country. Noem has raised $1.1 million over the past three months, about twice as much as her opponent, Rep. Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin (D-SD). And that money will go a long way: South Dakota's media market is one of the least expensive in the country. Noem may need the cash. Herseth-Sandlin is a moderate Democrat with a proven ability to win, and win big, in South Dakota. She decimated her Republican...
  • South Dakota House: Noem (R) Regains Small Lead Over Herseth-Sandlin (D)

    10/07/2010 10:35:14 AM PDT · by freespirited · 17 replies
    Republican Kristi Noem has edged back into the lead over incumbent Democrat Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin in South Dakotas U.S. House race. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely Voters in South Dakota finds Noem with 47% support, while Herseth-Sandlin earns 44% of the vote. Six percent (6%) like another candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are undecided. (To see survey question wording, click here.) It remains a very close race. Noem fell slightly behind Herseth-Sandlin last month 47% to 45% for the first time since winning the Republican Primary in early June. Noem, it appears, is beginning to...

    The air war is under way. Republican congressional candidate Kristi Noem aired her first general election TV ad Tuesday while Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., aired her fourth of the campaign. Noem targets what she terms out-of-control spending in Washington, D.C., in the 30-second spot that features images of the candidate as well as South Dakota icons such as a buffalo and Mount Rushmore. The government is here to serve the people, not the other way around, Noem says in the ad. Spending is an issue that plays well in the state, Noem said.No matter where I travel in our...

    Weekly Standard ^ | 6/14/10 | DANIEL HALPER
    The latest on South Dakota from Rasmussen: The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey, conducted two nights after the primary, finds Noem attracting 53% of the vote, while Herseth-Sandlin earns just 41%. Just five percent (5%) prefer some other candidate or are undecided. Prior to the primary, the incumbent held a three-point advantage over Noem. In April, Noem trailed by 15 points. It remains to be seen whether the bounce reflects a temporary aberration or signals a lasting change in the race. Incumbents who poll below 50% are considered potentially vulnerable, and Herseth-Sandlin has been below that mark all year....

    Rep. Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin, D-S.D., has lost her lead, for now, vs. the GOP nominee, state Rep. Kristi Noem, according to a new Rasmussen poll. Noem enjoys a 53%-41% edge over Sandlin, a leader of the Blue Dog Democrats who voted no on ObamaCare. Noem could be enjoying a typical post-primary victory bounce, but Sandlin has been polling well below 50%, a dangerous area for incumbents.
