Governor Kristi Noem has tripled her campaign war chest in the last five months.
According to the latest campaign finance filings with the Secretary of State, the Kristi For Governor campaign now has nearly $811,000 on hand.
In May she had about $245,000.
Noem’s reserves took a hit in 2018, with a costly gubernatorial primary against former Attorney General Marty Jackley, spending over $1.7 million.
A general election campaign against Democrat Billie Sutton cost Noem over $2.6 million.
Recently, the Republican Governor has been on the campaign trail for President Donald Trump and is gaining attention for her handling on the coronavirus pandemic.
