Wismer Wins Democratic Bid For South Dakota Governor
Susan Wismer

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Democrat Susan Wismer acknowledged the historical significance of her primary victory.  She's the first woman ever nominated to run for governor of South Dakota.  Wismer told supporters during her acceptance speech, "We've made history tonight."

Wismer said she will take Republican incumbent Dennis Daugaard to task "for the choices he's made and the damage that he's caused." 

Wismer said she and her primary opponent Joe Lowe ran "a spirited campaign" as both worked hard to bring the Democratic message to South Dakota voters.

Wismer said state government has not been working for many South Dakotans.  She said schools are falling behind in producing well-trained workers.
