Opinion: It’s refreshing to see real proposals from frontrunnerThe current gubernatorial race in South Dakota seems to be shaping up into a real yawner.
With Lt. Gov. Dennis Daugaard 30-plus points ahead of his opponent, Scott Heidepriem, in the polls, the campaign becomes pretty predictable. The candidate far behind throws out increasingly acerbic criticisms of the frontrunner while the frontrunner ignores his antagonist and says as little as possible, since it is politically unwise to shake things up when you are coasting to what appears to be a stunning victory.
