Gov. Kristi Noem: The Value of Being Strategic in Politics


Was something else you governed smartly and I know you took a couple of hits from conservatives of some issues, but the reality was you wanted to play smart politics. You wanted to make sure the legislation was perfect. And as a result of that, there is a long-term benefit, which is those laws are standing in place and Republicans have strong majorities in the great state of South Dakota now. Oh, absolutely. So for what we should be doing as governors is passing good strong bills that get stand up in court too, that can if they're because they're going to get challenged now. There's so many activist groups and so much money in the liberal side. They're going to challenge each piece of legislation in court. We got to make sure it's worded correctly that it's strong that it stands the test of a court challenge and that we don't set up for a failure of president that hurts us in the long run. So yes, being strategic and smart is incredibly important in this day and age.
