They even wore ties! Surprised there wasn’t a food truck in the background.
I have been wagering with several people that Noem will likely not show up to the debate on Friday. I think she knows she leads in the polls and doesn’t really need to be there.
She will likely have one of her minions pen an email about her back giving her trouble or some other fake emergency.
I look at this as an opportunity for the Democratic and Libertarian candidates to pile it on her and take a double team approach to pointing out her nepotism, corruption and illegal plane trips. Instead of them attacking each other, they need to attack the failed political system we currently have in South Dakota with one-party rule.
Maybe Jamie Smith needs to run an ad like this;
If you would have asked me this question the day he announced, I would have fell over laughing.
Money is the name of the game, and we could easily talk the issues, etc., but that is what wins.
But we are in strange times;
• Roe vs. Wade was overturned.
• The red state of Kansas overturned it in their state . . .
• Amendment C failed in SoDak.
We could also talk about plane trips, cheating and nepotism, but we won’t go there.
Social media today was on fire that internal and external polling show Jamie Smith is closing the GAP and is within Billie Sutton territory.
My family homesteaded in SoDak on both sides of the tree, I grew up here and my families have deep roots. No one was specifically conservative or liberal in my family, just caring, patriotic and faithful. One thing South Dakotans don’t like is liars and cheaters. Ironically, Noem could lose this race, by simply being a loser (and a liar and cheater).
I have said some pretty crazy things during public input at council meetings, but I am also not running for governor or currently serving as governor. Noem really struggles with saying something logical when she is caught by surprise on the campaign trail;
“I’ve used the plane probably half as much as the previous governor, nobody has covered that, I use it very little for the exact same events the previous governor did, and the governor before that, and the governor before that, so this is just a political hit job because I was the only one who had balls enough to say this attorney general that killed a guy and left him in a ditch and lied about it and covered it up shouldn’t be the attorney general anymore,” Noem said.
Actually many in the blogosphere, media, and political realm (Dems and Repugs) were calling for Jason’s resignation. Public polling also reflected that he must go. She didn’t just suddenly ‘grow at set’, the evidence was pretty clear that Jason was fiddling on his phone, drove fully in the ditch and ran over Joe Boever.
I’m also going to ask Noem to stop participating in female rodeo competitions since she seems to have an unfair advantage hanging out in her Wranglers. C’mon Kristi, stop being a hypocrite, we need fairness in female sports 🙂
