The Anti-Education governor, Rounds, running for Senate?


Anti-Open Government

Anti-Child Welfare (The Mette Case)

Anti-Fair Bid Contracts

Anti-Limited government

Anti-Fiscal responsibility


Yeah, sounds like a great guy for the senate.

Dakota Dunes comes to the rescue of the state of South Dakota, again!!!

We don’t need him for anything in politics, let him keep on selling insurance.

Rounds is not a political success of his own design. He is merely a by-product of the cat fight between Kirby and Barnett in 2002. His gubernatorial re-election was guaranteed because he was a Republican governor (sorry Farrar.) He cannot beat the “Rock Star” personas of a Noem or Sandlin in 2014.

CL – You pretty much nailed it. I think he was one of the worst governor’s in the history of the state especially when it came to transparency, corporate giveaways and destroying public education.

Anon – I have noticed there is a lot of press conferences lately in Dakota Dunes, wonder when Mayor Huether is going to start doing them there? It’s too bad Rounds didn’t do his press conference in conjuction with BPI’s lawsuit conference, of course, people would get confused which one was talking about ‘slime’.

We don’t need another do-nothing senator, just like he was a do-nothing governor.

Oh, Joan, he did quite a bit. Hired his family to work for state government and handed out millions in no-bid contracts to his buddies. He was a POS governor and I can’t believe the Dems sit by and let him continue.

while rounds claims to be against obamacare, i’m sure secretly he loves it, since it makes people buy health insurance, which he sells.

When he was governor he was doing PSA’s about buying supplemental insurance for Medicare . . . gee . . . who sold supplemental insurance? I wonder? That guy will feed at any government trough he can.

Dakota Dunes conferences due to Lederman’s Rushmore PAC (TEA Party) support.

That is odd, because Round’s PAC was giving money to same candidates that Rushmore PAC was. They are probably sharing info.
