Rounds leaves office proud and popular, but with detractors

Mike Rounds will depart from the governor’s office today, ending two terms as South Dakota’s 31st governor with high approval rates and a legacy still to be determined.
Dennis Daugaard, his running mate, lieutenant governor and friend, will take the reins of state government. But don’t expect Rounds to take a long break to recover from eight years of running South Dakota government.
