SDWC Author Featured in Argus Leader Article on Hubbel’s entrance into the race for Governor.

I must be having a jerky, muckraking day.  After relating what I found out about the Secretary of State’s Vote 605 App, I find myself quoted in the Argus Leader, commenting about the entrance of Lora Hubbel into the race for Governor:

Since Hubbel lost her races for governor then lieutenant governor in 2014, she has since run unsuccessfully for a state Senate seat and started a petition effort to stop a Sioux Falls School Board move to increase property taxes to fund schools.

That losing streak is unlikely to end in 2018, said Pat Powers, author of the Republican website Dakota War College.

“Lora’s views are not in step with a lot of South Dakotans and I don’t know if she’s going to be able to overcome that,” Powers said. “She has exhibited and expressed some views that some people might consider toward the fringe.”

Powers said Trump’s campaign was able to pull more than 60 percent of the vote in South Dakota, but Hubbel likely couldn’t do that by sharing some of the president’s talking points.

“I don’t think she’s going to be able to duplicate that success,” he said.

Actually I think they me made sound much more magnanimous than I was. 🙂

  1. I read the argus blog about it. “Featured” seems a strong, Argus-like headline, when “prominently mentioned” seems more accurate. I don’t like Ms. Hubbel in that pink dress. She would do well to avoid the sleeveless pink dresses during her campaign, although grudznick is no political adviser so I could be wrong.

  2. The Argus Leader is trying to smear President Trump by linking him to Hubbel.

    Hubbel wants to be popular by trying to sit at the cool kids’ table.

  3. You guys are “all-wet”…Lora is actually on a crusade to clean up South Dakota and is the consummate outsider. She keeps her word and has a generous spirit and comes up with some good ideas with the right staff….who knows????

      1. People are ready for a change Pat. They are sick of status quo. She is a no-nonsense candidate that will be direct and honest with the people. We aren’t going to agree with her 100% of the time, but she won’t be playing the politically correct game, and that is refreshing.

  4. I’m definitely going to her press conference announcement tomorrow. I hear they are giving out tin foil hats!

  5. I can understand Lora’s desire to ride the Trump Tsunami that swept away even his GOP challengers in which one was expected to be the anointed nominee years prior but feel that Lora’s primary result will be worse than before. Lora is a very fringe “out there” candidate. Kristi Noem and Marty Jackley have well oiled machines behind them with. Noem presently has the funding from her congressional campaign and Marty’s campaign could end up being pretty scrappy which is a compliment.

  6. I vote the tin-foiled hat over the well-oiled money machine. Do they really represent the people more than Lora???? Far from it.

    1. Tara, The number of people that would consider voting Lora is an extremely small number which would qualify as fringe in the primary. When she ran before the numbers she was able to get were protest votes with the majority of those voters knowing she would never win and wanted to send a message. Otherwise they never would of voted for her to actually be in the Governor’s office.

    2. Tara then again things happen one would never ever expect like Donald Trump being elected president. Even the Donald and his team never expected to actually get as far as they did and especially winning. I talked to a lot of people door knocking and many were not happy with either political party in the jobs they were doing and a few told me they wanted to throw a grenade in the room and shake things up. They certainly did! He was certainly not my choice and I just hope our nation and the political parties learn from this going forward provided we do not end up in a nuclear war. So who knows! 🙂
