Mike Huether, Obama’s guy in Sioux Falls, invites him to town.

From the Argus:

Heather Hitterdal, communications specialist for the city of Sioux Falls, said Friday that Mayor Mike Huether sent formal invitations to Obama and Buffett, but neither is able to attend because of prior commitments.

“We would have liked to welcomed them to our city,” Hitterdal said, “It never hurts to try.”

mikeHuetherFor someone running for Governor in two years, I’m surprised that Huether is trying to snuggle up to Obama. Considering South Dakota battles Utah for the title of “State where Obama is the least popular.”

  1. Huether does operate by (or understand) conventional political tactics, i.e inviting an unpopular president to visit. He has such a big ego that: 1) he thinks he’s above such things and 2) he thinks he can change public perception about such things (i.e. Make SDans realize what a great POTUS Obama is).

    Should make for an interesting race against Noem or Mickelson

  2. Are you saying that his big ego is responsible for having his mug on billboards around the city and not because it is the best way to promote Sioux Falls? I thought all mayors had billboards of themselves paid for by taxpayer dollars because it was the most effective way to promote the town. Boy, was I wrong.
