Daugaard Discusses Last Time He Saw Janklow

Daugaard Discusses Last Time He Saw Janklow

Bill Janklow spent 16 years as governor of South Dakota. And he helped shape South Dakota into the state is today.

KELOLAND's Ben Dunsmoor was live during KELOLAND News at 6 in Pierre with current Governor Dennis Daugaard.

The last time Daugaard saw Janklow was at Gene Abdallah's game fee back in November, shortly after the press conference when he announced he had brain cancer.

"The night of the game feed he was not going to come and they had a little reception for Laura Bush at Russ Janklow's law firm. And so Russ prevailed on Bill to come down to the reception. But he didn't come out into the reception area. He didn't want to detract from Laura Bush or create an attraction or a scene, so he put himself in a corner office and people would go in and see him just one at a time. And Linda and I went in there and he said, 'I'm having a hard time remembering but I know you are the governor and he gave me a hug and he whispered, 'You're doing a good job, and that meant a lot for someone like him."
