The Scouting Report: A weekly digest
Politicians hit the road, marijuana raid, kangaroo attacks
The final days of our election season saw politicians descend on otherwise peaceful small towns across the state, as they sought to stir up support and excitement ahead of the Nov. 8 election. Gov. Kristi Noem embarked for a second week of an RV tour after making stops the preceding week in the Black Hills, Wall, Chamberlain, Sioux Falls and Brookings for Hobo Days.
Meanwhile, Democratic candidates kicked off a statewide tour Tuesday in Vermillion at the University of South Dakota. Rep. Jamie Smith, candidate for governor, as well as U.S. Senate candidate Brian Bengs and Secretary of State candidate Tom Cool were scheduled to participate. Rallies were planned in Chamberlain, Fort Thompson, Pine Ridge, Rapid City, Pierre, Huron, Aberdeen, Watertown and Brookings before ending in Sioux Falls next Monday.
