The primary elections are over, bringing with them a few surprises and also marking a new beginning of the 2010 campaign season for some high-profile political offices here in South Dakota.
Dennis Daugaard won easily Tuesday in a crowded Republican gubernatorial primary, gathering 50 percent of the vote. Daugaard, the popular lieutenant governor, now will face Democrat Scott Heidepriem in November, with the winner taking the position held for eight years by Daugaard’s boss, Mike Rounds.
