U.S. Senate candidate Brian Bengs talks about his campaign

ABERDEEN, S.D.(WNAX)- Several polls in the past few weeks from CBS News and the Associated Press among others report that up to eighty five percent of those polled think the country is headed in the wrong direction.

South Dakota democratic Senate candidate Brian Bengs says that sounds about right.

Despite democrats controlling Congress and the White House, Bengs says that’s not a problem for him.

Bengs says he is trying to get to as many voters as he can.

Bengs faces three term incumbent republican Senator John Thune and libertarian candidate Tamara Lesnar.
