Jon Hunter, publisher of the Madison Daily Leader, and Roger Whittle, managing editor of the Watertown Public Opinion, joined the Dakota Political Junkies this week. They discussed South Dakota's fourth consecutive budget surplus and higher revenues than estimated; a proposed initiated constitutional amendment creating an independent redistricting commission; petition drives that would put the issue of payday lending on the 2016 ballot; and Senator John Thune's campaign war chest.
