SIOUX FALLS, SD -
The two Republican members of South Dakota's congressional delegation say they're willing to work with President Barack Obama on key issues, and they hope the Democratic president is willing to work with Republicans.
Sen. John Thune and Rep. Kristi Noem made the comments after Obama's State of the Union address Tuesday night. They say the nation needs a fair tax code, regulatory reform and energy security.
Democrat Sen. Tim Johnson says he likes Obama's vision for economic recovery and a balanced energy policy. He says Obama has laid out an ambitious agenda, and Congress shouldn't wait until after the election to get things done.
