Joe Glenn: Billie is 'ready to lead as governor and make S.D. stronger'

"As former head football coach at the University of South Dakota and a former U.S. Army officer, I have seen many great leaders. Sen. Billie Sutton is one of the best I’ve seen.

Being a great leader is about bringing people together to accomplish something bigger than any one person can accomplish. That is Billie Sutton.

I met Billie when he was a rodeo standout at the University of Wyoming where I was coaching football. I learned of Billie’s paralyzing rodeo accident, but knew he had the strength and perseverance to overcome – and he did.

Billie, the common sense cowboy I know, is serving his neighbors as a legislator and prominent voice for the people of South Dakota. He is ready to lead as governor and make S.D. stronger.

The best leaders have these qualities: passion, courage and perseverance. Billie possesses each of these. He is passionate about our state and is a true public servant. He is someone who never backs down from a challenge. That is how Billie was raised and how he would govern.

Let’s elect Billie Sutton to lead S.D.’s team as the next governor of our great state.

Fight, South Dakota."
