If it were anywhere but South Dakota, a traditionally strong Republican state, I wouldn't have paid much attention. Is this really a sign of an election trend or is it a one-time thing?

Herseth had a ridiculously high name recognition because of her family background. 2. Herseth nearly blew a thirty-point lead in the polls and only won by two. I'd say if the election were held next week, Diedrich would've won. 3. The Daschle/Thune Senate race is going to be brutal and drag both Herseth and Diedrich into the fray. Given the money that GOP groups are going to pour into SD, it'll probably give Diedrich a push.
