Editorial: Show must go on, even without two governor candidates

It won’t be the debate that we’ve talked about so much these past few months, but we expect it still to be a great day of politics at the Corn Palace.
The Daily Republic-Corn Palace Festival Debate will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Corn Palace.
Although we hoped to bring you gubernatorial candidates Dennis Daugaard and Scott Heidepriem, the governor’s debate was canceled late Wednesday afternoon due to unfortunate circumstances. Daugaard’s good friend, Steven Hainje, died earlier in the week of a heart attack and the funeral is scheduled for Saturday morning, prompting Daugaard to regretfully pull out of the debate.
