And yet, that's exactly what Weiland did at a debate Wednesday. The GOP opposition research group America Rising clipped the blunder here:
In Weiland's defense, he seemed to be tripped up a little by referring to a U.S. senator and then transitioning to former governor Mike Rounds (R), whom he almost called "senator" and then "soon-to-be senator."
But for a guy who's just trying to convince people he's got a shot ... ouch.
