Exploring the surprises on Donald Trump's VP shortlist

On today's show...

We get an update on potential changes to how certain candidates show up on the ballot from SDPB's Lee Strubinger.

Crossover day was Wednesday, which means all bills must move out of their chamber of origin or fail. We check in with party leadership ahead of this deadline.

Republicans Sen. Casey Crabtree and Rep. Will Mortenson discuss why they say their party's priorities are in great shape today and talk about their roles as majority leaders.

Donald Trump recently confirmed several names on his shortlist of vice president picks. South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is among those names. We discuss her chances and her recent move to send members of the National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border.

David Wiltse, Ph.D., and Lisa Hager, Ph.D., are associate professors of political science at South Dakota State University and our Dakota Political Junkies today.

Then we hear from the minority leaders about their priorities after crossover day. Democrats Sen. Reynold Nesiba and Rep. Oren Lesmeister talk about education, elections and the pipeline bills.
