Do divisions within a state political party impact you? What's the definition of conservatism? The Dakota Political Junkies join us today to dig in to a few of the state's top political headlines. Today we welcome Seth Tupper, enterprise reporter for the Rapid City Journal, and John Hunter, publisher of the Madison Daily Leader.

It's a standard story in show business mythology: the big break, the chance discovery, the Cinderella story that allows an unknown to rise overnight to stardom. American Idol taps into those hopes and offers unknowns across the nation a chance to be discovered. In Rapid City, three hundred forty nine competitors signed up to audition, hoping, like Willy Wonka's candy-eaters, to grasp a Golden Ticket. SDPB's Victoria Wicks followed some of them as they moved forward in line, getting to know them and catching a preview of what they hoped to offer to the judges.
