LETTER: Candidates shouldn’t limit how many debates they do

To the Editor:

Why is Mike Rounds limiting the number of debates he is willing to attend? He isn’t governor anymore and, unless I am mistaken, he is a full-time candidate. Does he have something better to do than talk with South Dakota voters? I think we deserve answers as to why he won’t attend more debates. This is supposed to be a campaign, not a coronation. In an age where outside groups can spend unlimited amounts of money on political ads, it is time for candidates to go out in person and talk with voters.
