Governor Kristi Noem was supposed to speak to Girls State at USD Wednesday evening and Boys State at Northern last night. But evidently she’s been so busy celebrating Dairy Month and storming the border that she hasn’t had time to post clips from either of her talks to South Dakota’s future leaders.
Noem couldn’t even make Wednesday’s gig in Vermillion. Jerry Oster of WNAX reported Wednesday that the Governor postponed her Girls State talk to Thursday at 8:15 p.m, which would have required a fast flight out of Aberdeen after her scheduled 5 p.m. talk to Boys State. Girls Staters were eager to hear from the Governor last night, but I’m hearing word from Vermillion that Noem canceled on Girls State yesterday. What—she couldn’t even send her scholarly press secretary to twirl her batons for our aspiring lady leaders?
