PIERRE — Democrat Scott Heidepriem tells voters if they want a change in state government, they should elect him as South Dakota’s next governor. Republican Dennis Daugaard counters that he offers a wide range of experience and a steady hand.
The race between Heidepriem, leader of the Democratic minority in the state Senate, and Daugaard, the lieutenant governor for the past eight years, has focused mainly on the state’s budget problems and what each candidate proposes to do about it.
