Governor Daugaard kicks off his re-election campaign


Governor Dennis Daugaard is asking voters for four more years at the helm. He officially kicked off his re-election campaign on Tuesday at a stop in Sioux Falls, then one in Rapid City.

Daugaard says he's proud he took a $127 million structural deficit and brought the State budget into a surplus. He says if elected again, he wants to focus on job creation.    

"Workforce is still a major issue in South Dakota. We've taken some initial steps in that area, but I think there is a lot of opportunity to improve. Our citizens deserve good jobs," said Governor Daugaard.  

Daugaard, who previously spent eight years as Governor Mike Rounds' Lieutenant Governor, is being challenged by two Democrats, Susan Wismer, and Joe Lowe.
