Jun 22, 2016

  The Dakota Political Junkies are a rotating panel of the most experienced and insightful political reporters and editors in the state. Seth Tupper looks at the town of Cottonwood (population: 12) as it survives a dissolution vote. Dana Ferguson explores possibilities for Medicaid expansion as Governor Daugaard reaches out to undecided state Republicans. We also explore the contentious state GOP primaries and how the tone of campaigning might be changing how South Dakotans see their political culture.

Seth Tupper is an enterprise reporter for the Rapid City Journal. Dana Ferguson is a watchdog state government and political reporter for the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.
