"State Senator Phil Jensen's remarks are not only a disgusting affront to South Dakota's diverse residents, but also a slap in the face for anyone who values diversity here in South Dakota and beyond," Zach Crago, Executive Director of the South Dakota Democratic Party said in a press release. "That's why I'm calling on Governor Dennis Daugaard and Jensen's peers in the state senate to condemn these hateful remarks. Daugaard needs to be a leader for the people of South Dakota and admit that discrimination has no place in public accommodations."
