Governor Kristi Noem raised almost $1 million in the fourth quarter of 2020 for her campaign; roughly 80 percent of that was from donors outside of South Dakota. It was the height of the pandemic here at home, when hundreds of people were dying weekly and hospitals were pushed to their capacity.

We have a new president. A Heavily guarded inauguration ceremony went smoothly as Joe Biden was sworn in as the 46th President of the United States.

And, in one of his last acts as president, Donald Trump raised eyebrows in South Dakota with the pardon of Paul Erickson who was sentenced to seven years in prison last year for defrauding investors.
