The CPAC crowd booed when told to wear masks in compliance with hotel rules and local ordinances in Orlando at their weekend Trumpfest. To her credit, well-traveled Governor Kristi Noem did comply while signing autographs on Saturday at a booth with her campaign groomer Corey Lewandowski:
Lewandowski kept his mask off, though, and promoted his gal with posters for her deep-red-palmed base showing Kristi in her more usual costume:
“America’s Governor”? I thought we elected her to be South Dakota’s Governor.
Darn—if that photo of Kristi following CDC guidelines could have tamped down any political challengers in 2022, those posters (notice the one on the table with the horsey) opens the door for a smart candidate who knows how to play to the South Dakota electorate.
