This week's Dakota Political Junkies features Roger Whittle, managing editor of the Watertown Public Opinion, and Seth Tupper, enterprise reporter for the Rapid City Journal. We talk about the 2018 gubernatorial primary options, the power of Pennington County Republicans, and whether or not a Sioux Falls mayor has the chance at statewide office.

A plaque commemorating President Calvin Coolidge's use of the old Rapid City High School as his executive office has been dedicated by Historic Rapid City. The plaque features photos of Coolidge and his wife, Grace, arriving in Rapid City by train and Coolidge on the steps of the school, which has since been torn down. It was from those steps that Coolidge announced that he chose not to run for re-election.
