    The SD Grand Old Party, NOem/Rodent and this blog are in full panic mode because the Argus endorsed Sutton. And its endorsement contains many valid points (example: the tax reform legislation has increased the deficit and NOem supported it.). The spin machine is in overdrive! Love it!

      I don’t think anyone ever expected the Argus to endorse anyone but Billie, since the moment he announced he was running.

        I didn’t think the AL would endorse Sutton from the moment he announced his candidacy. I don’t read minds.

        Was that $1,000.00 you gave to Noem worth it see Trump?

      Have you seen the Arduous Liar’s circulation? Have you seen how many people the AL has endorsed the loser of an election? Personally, I like to see who the AL endorses so I know who not to vote for. BTW, since they came out against Kristi Noem, that tells us they are anti-women, right?

          Yes, you’d be correct. If leftists and feminists followed the rules they’ve implemented, the Argus is anti-women and they should be protesting in their Handmaid costumes. In fact, they should be protesting Sutton because of his claims to be pro-life, he too is anti-women.

          However, as we’ve come to learn, those rules do not apply to Democrats.

              Uh, he’s pro-life. He wants to take reproductive rights away from women, anti-women. That’s what was said about Kavanaugh.

              Happy to help you catch up.

                So, according to your logic, someone who is pro-life is anti-women. And pro-life women are anti-women. Uh, sure. You are a complete moron.

                  Did you miss the Women’s March? How about the women dressed in Handmaid’s Tale costumes protesting Kavanaugh? Catch any of that? Have you heard the chants: ‘My body, my choice’ or ‘Stay out of my vagina’?

                  Sutton claims to be pro-life. Feminists say he wants to take away women’s reproductive rights, the right to kill their baby. It’s leftists’ logic. You must not get out much.

        d, where did it state they are anti-women? It employs women. And it endorsed NOem to be the Republican candidate for governor. It endorsed TenHaken for SF mayor and he won. Need more examples or can you look for yourself? Once you stop hyperventilating and overreacting. And think rationally.

          Kavanaugh employs women. Trump employs women. They are ANTI-WOMEN, didn’t you hear the protestors’ chants? How many examples do you need or can you look for yourself? Feminists and leftists hyperventilate, did you see them clawing at the Supreme Court doors?

          Do leftist rules apply to Democrats? Not in your world.

          By not endorsing Noem, the AL has shown themselves to be anti-women. We learned that when we found out that if we voted for Trump instead of HRC, we must be anti-women. I am just applying the same yardstick liberals apply to conservatives. And incase you missed it, that was sarcasm.

    I’m a YUGE Kristi Supporter and I’ll vote for her over literally anyone in the State, BUT whoever made this ad just did us a disservice. WE ARE REPUBLICANS. WE DONT MAKE SH*T UP. Billie might not have a perfect pro life voting record but… gawly fellas, this is what makes people leave the party. Obviously Noem/Rhoden is the better choice by a million miles OBVIOUSLY. Why dont we focus on that.

            Did the Trump campaign meet with the Russians to obtain info on their opponent without notifying the state Dept? Yep. Did Trump deny it ever happened until he eventually admitted to it? Yep. Do I think Trump is smart enough to not handle these things directly so he can maintain a level of deniability? Yep. His son should already be charged for lying to the FBI about the meeting. That is a fact.

              Wait, so the MSM is lying about how stupid Trump is? He’s not competent enough to be president, that’s what they say. But, you’re saying Trump is smart and did collude with Russia to change the election in his favor. I was told Russian bots did that.

              Please, get your stories straight, it’s hard to follow the mob when they continue to change standards and reason why to impeach 45.

      Troy, while it is a waste of money, I have to disagree that it doesn’t hurt. There are a lot of people up here God’s country that I have personally spoken with, who are diehard republicans, that are displeased with the negative ad tactics and campaign that Kristi has already began running. While I know this ad does not come directly from Kristi’s campaign, I don’t think the average voter sees any difference. People know Billie is a democrat, morphing his face into Hilary’s while giving him the nickname “bait and switch Billie” is a distasteful and negative tactic that very well might push someone on the fence to the left side of it. Kristi, and the SDGOP, needs to be focusing more on what she has done for SD during her time in the legislature and in Washington while also paving a clear path as to how she wishes to move the state forward as governor.

          Are you and Austin just getting started in politics? This is nothing new. Politics are tough and if your feelings are so easily hurt, you should refrain from getting involved. I can’t imagine how you’d feel knowing what some of the founding fathers said about each other during their debates.

          Positivity wins people over way more? Then why is it that people will tell 10 people something bad that’s happened to them and rarely tell anyone when something positive happens?

            It is funny how you somehow associate my desire for a better campaign to help Kristi win to my feeling easily being hurt. Which would also be an assumption, and you know what they say about people who assume things? I would let you know, but I wouldn’t want to hurt your feelings. And for the record, I have zero current political ambitions. Not because my feelings are easily hurt, but because I enjoy my sanity.

              So, we’re suppose to pander to your desires? That’s not how this works. Kristi’s campaign would be better if she and others neglected to highlight opponents’ stand on policies, or lack there of? Who says? Oh, that’s right, Austin Hoffman says his opinion is best and most powerful.

              That’s good advice to give to yourself… stay out of politics.

    Billie’s wife idolizes Gerda Lerner, a radical that studied under Marxism and was married to a communist theater producer. Not only that she is huge pro choice. With that kind of influence in his life, I would say it would be pretty scary to send him to Pierre.

            I know for a fact Kelsea is for abortion. I also know Billie is for whatever his wife is for. You people who dont know them, haveno idea the influence she has on him. So believe me, a vote for Billie is a vote for his little wife. And no one in Burke wants her up there. Take note.

              I see desperation of trying to find anything and I mean anything since Noem’s planned coronation does not look like it will happen. The South Dakota Snow Queen will not not be crowned a governor. These last few weeks will make what she did to Marty look like nothing with going negative and making things up to see if it sticks. It’s the Kristi Noem style. Governor Sutton will be a welcome change from all the scandals that have plagued this state.

                What scandals? If you think Noem was involved in any SD scandals you are crazy!! Sutton has been crying “Scandal” and “Corruption” for his entire campaign. If there truly was scandals or corruption that Sutton personally knew about, by law, as an elected official, he is guilty and could be prosecuted for not reporting them. Also, the ad that was released about Jackley the last couple of weeks was true. That lady did win a law suit for $1.5 million because of something he did. He could have eased the blow by coming out and saying “I made a mistake”. We all make mistakes. Just saying it would have helped him a lot if the ego was let go and he apologized to you the tax payers for making a mistake that cost you all $1.5 million. Kristi Noem is the best choice for SD and will be getting my vote.

            To put it in very simple terms so you can understand, his wife and mom think it’s ok to rip a baby from his or hers mother’s womb because that life is an inconvenience.

      Im a little perplexed by your post? So Billie and his wife can’t have differing opinions? My husband and I debate politics and are not always on the same side. My dad and I debate politics and are very often not on the same side. Just like people making a big deal about his distant in laws donating to Noem – I just don’t get the big deal. I have a hard time wrapping my head around the fact that some people must live in families where everyone has the same views politically. Our Thanksgivings would be a lot more mundane. Hahaha

        If you don’t think his wife and his mom have a huge influence in his decision making, you don’t know this family personally. For those of us that know them personally, we know that he is trying to pull the wool over the eyes of S.D. voters.He is definitely not a conservative Democrat. In his own words, he likes Bernie Sanders policies. He probably forgot that this conversation was videotaped. Lol. There’s so much more that he is hiding, but you have your head in the sand so there’s no use wasting any more of my time.
