Bob Mercer, who
is a stringer provides stories (per correction in comments) for several daily papers, has an interview with Secretary of State Shantel Krebs in her pursuit of the Congressional Seat being vacated by Kristi Noem against former PUC Commissioner and Daugaard Chief of Staff Dusty Johnson:
Why she’s running: “When President Trump was elected, I was all in,” Krebs said.
She said South Dakota voters tell her they are frustrated and want “the mess cleaned up” in Washington, D.C.
“It’s not working,” Krebs said. “I want to help him deliver results.” She added: “That’s what my logo is: Get it done.”
How she’s organized her campaign: Krebs said it’s “a lot” of evenings and weekends. Her daytime focus is the office in Pierre. “I was elected to be secretary of state,” she said.
If someone on the office staff is out sick, Krebs said she or others on the staff answers the office phone. She said staff buys into her message: “We work for the taxpayer.”
Krebs states she is running because she answers the phone and “want(s) to help” President Trump “deliver results?”
Oooookay….. (It didn’t seem like she was promising to be helpful for President Trump just a couple of months ago.)
