Whalen falls short in S.D. House race

South Dakota Republican Bruce Whalen, an enrolled member of the Oglala Sioux Tribe who served as as coordinator of the tribe's judiciary committee, fell short in his effort to oust incumbent Democrat Stephanie Herseth to represent the state in its lone House seat.

According to CNN projections, Whalen had garnered only 29% of the vote (with 100% of precincts reporting) as of 9:01 ET this morning.
