Democratic candidates face off in South Dakota governor's race


VERMILLION, S.D. - Two of south Dakota's Governor candidates squared off in a debate.

The two democratic candidates Joe Lowe and Susan Wismer discussed topics ranging from ranching to healthcare.

Both felt strongly about focusing on education in the state.

The candidates say their wealth of experience is why they're qualified for the job.

"I've done it, I've done it as a mayor, I've done it twelve years in the executive branches of the state government. I've proven myself and worked across party lines. I've had to get big things done and I've done 'em," said Lowe.

"I've got the proven record of being elected in South Dakota, and the proven record of challenging the governor on the decisions he's made the last four years," said Wismer.

Lowe is currently a businessman in Rapid City.

Wismer is from northeastern South Dakota and currently serves in the South Dakota House of Representatives.
