Why I'm Running

I’m running for Governor to put my South Dakota values of hard work, honesty, and integrity to work for the people of South Dakota. I believe we can do better than the status quo and politics as usual. 

I’m running for Governor because I believe in growing our state’s economy – creating jobs, supporting agriculture, and strengthening our rural communities. I believe in a world-class education in our schools and colleges. I believe in cleaning up corruption in Pierre so our politics are as honest as the hardworking people of our state.

I am running for Governor for all those who believe as I do that the system is broken and together we can rise to the occasion, meet our challenges, and build a stronger South Dakota.

Meeting The Challenge

We must rise to the occasion. We must meet the challenges before us to see our state be all it can be: South Dakota Strong. As our next Governor, Billie Sutton will fight to ensure that all South Dakotans can live the South Dakota dream of having a good-paying job, a great quality of life, and a world-class education, while thriving in a state that helps every South Dakotan live up to their God-given potential.


Meet Billie Sutton
