Governor Noem announces re-election bid
Some South Dakota lawmakers push for subpoena over job issue involving Noem’s daughter.
PIERRE, S.D. (KOTA) - South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem says she is running for re-election, just as some state lawmakers are pondering issuing a subpoena over a controversy involving the governor’s daughter.
The Associated Press reported Friday that lawmakers are readying to issue a subpoena on Noem’s administration to hand over a document regarding her daughter’s attempt to win a state appraisal license. They want to know if there was an agreement in place to give Kassidy Peters another chance at the license prior to a meeting last year in Noem’s office that has spurred conflict-of-interest questions.
In announcing her re-election bid, Noem’s release stated she has more than $6.5 million on hand in various campaign accounts.
