Term limits group launches mailer campaign: The group U.S. Term Limits, which advocates for term limits on legislators, announced today that it’s sending postcards to constituents of Sen. Tim Rave and Sen. Dan Lederman, urging them to oppose the constitutional amendment that would extend South Dakota’s legislative term limits from eight years to 12.
You can view the Lederman postcard here (PDF).
The postcard makes reference to a poll the group (apparently) conducted by the group in 2009 of South Dakota voters. You can read the poll questions here. The language of the questions is, by and large, phrased to push the reader towards term limit support. (The first question, for example, doesn’t ask what people feel about term limits, or making them longer. It asks “how angry” they are about that.)
