PIERRE, S.D. _ South Dakota voters would be allowed to wear political clothing and buttons while casting their ballots under a bill set to be debated during the state’s upcoming legislative session. GOP Sen. Stace Nelson, the bill’s main sponsor, said a U.S. Supreme Court ruling earlier this year striking down Minnesota’s broad restrictions on voters wearing “political” hats, T-shirts and pins to the polls, provided “the needed boost” to roll back South Dakota’s law.

MINNEAPOLIS _ Coach Dwane Casey and the Detroit Pistons, trying to recover from their six-game losing streak to start December, visit Minnesota where Casey got his first head coach job with the Timberwolves 13 years ago. By Patrick Donnelly. UPCOMING: 700 words, photos. Game starts at 8 p.m. EST.
