Representative Lynne DiSanto isn’t just calling Governor Dennis Daugaard unfit and out of touch. She’s testing her guns-everywhere-for-everyone outrage for a gun-nut run for Governor. Check out the third audio clip in her interview with KCCR over the Governor’s veto of her permitless concealed carry bill:
The reality is all we can hope to do is minimize the damage that he’s going to do in our state to move against the conservative principles that we stand for. He’s not on the same page as the Legislature, and I think that people in the leg would be wise to distance themselves from Daugaard, and my guess is that he’s going to be helping a candidate with the next election because people are going to be looking for a candidate more conservative than him [Rep. Lynne DiSanto, in “Lawmaker Says Daugaard Couldn’t Get Elected Dog Catcher,” KCCR Radio, 2017.03.20].
Looking for a candidate more conservative than Daugaard? That won’t be declared candidates Kristi Noem or Marty Jackley. It won’t be Lt. Gov. Matt Michels if he jumps into the race. It could be DiSanto, if she decides she wants to walk the brighter runway of a statewide race.
