At 28, Venhuizen helps Daugaard win gubernatorial race and earns job in administration
Tony Venhuizen is able to look Gov.-elect Dennis Daugaard right in the eye and tell him he thinks he’s wrong.
“I’ve done that many times. People have asked me before, ‘With your relationship, is it hard to be honest with him?’” Venhuizen said during a recent telephone interview with The Daily Republic. “Actually, it’s easier. He accepts my advice and I hope he values it. That’s the only way it can work.”
