Dakota Political Junkies

This interview is from SDPB's daily public-affairs show, In the Moment, hosted by Lori Walsh.

Mike Card, Ph.D., is an associate professor of criminal justice and political science at the University of South Dakota. He joins us with analysis of the battle between the governor and state legislators for spending authority.
