Governor candidates debate the issues
Published 08/19/2010, The Daily Republic
Gubernatorial candidates Dennis Daugaard and Scott Heidepriem clashed over the state budget and the size of state government during a Dakotafest forum Wednesday in Mitchell.
Daugaard, the Republican lieutenant governor, and Heidepriem, a Democratic state senator, also discussed farm issues and other topics during the one-hour appearance. More than 200 people listened and submitted written questions, but the forum drew a smaller crowd than the congressional forum held Tuesday.
