Jonathan Ellis, reporter/columnist for the Sioux Falls Argus Leader, and Seth Tupper, enterprise reporter for the Rapid City Journal, joined the Dakota Political Junkies this week. They discussed the acquittal of a Philip man accused of spilling beer on Native American students at a Rapid City hockey game; Rapid City Mayor Steve Allender's proposal to lengthen mayoral and city council terms; and selecting a Democrat to run against Republic U.S. Senator John Thune in 2016.
