Knutson working on Summer Victory Team Vermillion native Andrew Knutson is one of a number of South Dakota college students working on a grassroots Summer Victory Team in support of Congressman John Thune in his bid for the U.S. Senate and the Republican ticket.
Knutson is the son of Richard and Virginia Knutson, and a 2002 graduate of Vermillion High School.
As a member of a grassroots Summer Victory Team, Knutson will go door-to-door talking with residents about John Thune and the Republican ticket. Additionally, Knutson will listen to what voters have to say about the issues that are important to South Dakota, and he will have literature, bumper stickers, and information for each of the homes he visits.
Teams similar to the Victory Team that Knutson is a member of fanned our across the state in 1980 and helped lead former Senator Jim Abdnor to a resounding victory over incumbent Senator George McGovern.
"I'm so pleased that Andrew is a part of these Summer Victory Teams," said Thune. "The grassroots work of our young people is vital to a Republican victory in November."
