Friday, September 7, Donald Trump made a visit to the Denny Sanford Premier Center in Sioux Falls.

President Trump made his first visit to South Dakota in order to voice his support for gubernatorial candidate Kristi Noem. Gubernatorial opponent and Senator Billie Sutton’s campaign were quick to criticize Noem’s decision to bring in the White House to aid in her campaign.

According to the Argus Leader, Sutton’s campaign manager stated that “…Noem realized her political career is in danger… she calls in help from Washington.”

Despite Noem’s rather precarious decision to work with Trump, she has gained both publicity and fundraising through his visit. Attendees paid $500 per person, and for a picture with the president, the cost was $5,000.

The gubernatorial election will be held on Tuesday, November 6 to decide on the next South Dakota governor.
