Press Release - Sutton Kicks-off “South Dakota Strong Tour”

SIOUX FALLS - In the final days of his campaign for South Dakota Governor, Senator Billie Sutton is kicking off his “South Dakota Strong Tour,” criss-crossing the state to meet with voters one last time. Sutton continues an aggressive itinerary that will have taken him to every corner of the state in the last two weeks of the campaign.

Following Monday’s final debate, Sutton now sets out on his 19-stop tour, visiting with voters in Yankton, Vermillion, USD, Pierre, Mitchell, Huron, and Madison. In his final swing through western South Dakota, Sutton will visit Hot Springs and Rapid City, then he’ll make stops in the northeast South Dakota cities of Watertown, Webster, Millbank, Aberdeen, and Brookings. In the final full day of campaigning, Sutton will spend Monday in Hartford, Harrisburg, Tea, Brandon, and Sioux Falls.

As he began his final campaign tour, Sutton said:

“We have just one more week to let all of South Dakota know that they have a choice for a stronger, more united South Dakota in this election. Voters can choose between more of the same old divisive politics as usual, or they can buck the status quo and vote to bring all people together to clean up state government and build a brighter future for South Dakota.”

Each stop will include media availability. Members of the media interested in setting up an interview can contact
