SD Voters Will Watch MN On Super Tuesday

SD Voters Will Watch MN On Super Tuesday


Voters in 24 states are gearing up for Super Tuesday. While South Dakota is not one of them, voters in the state say they'll be watching closely, to see that issues important to the Midwest are addressed. 

Politics are just about as hot as the drinks at Black Sheep Coffee in Sioux Falls. 

Voters we talked with are interested in tomorrow's Super Tuesday results; specifically, what happens in Minnesota. 

"I think a lot of our views are shared throughout the Midwest," said Sean Hartka of Sioux Falls. 

Presidential candidates can win more delegates Tuesday than on any other day during the campaigning months, and it may give an indication about which candidates we'll see on the ballot in November. 

Many people have ideas about what they'd like those candidates to address. 

"Definitely the economy,” Hartka said. “I mean, the dollar is sliding big time, and I'd really like to see it make a strong comeback." 

"To have affordable healthcare for people that are my age,” said Jennifer Bursing of Sioux Falls. “Around 23, still going to school, still working part-time or full-time, but it's still not affordable." 

Voters also say they'd like to hear more about incentives for developing alternative fuels. 

"It's already affecting us in South Dakota, we have a boom in corn and fertilizers,” Christopher Martin of Sioux Falls said. “Anything corn related is worth more in the stock markets." 

Which is good for South Dakota's economy. Now we'll have to wait to see if these issues are as important to candidates, as they are to South Dakotans. 

South Dakota's primary is the last in the nation, held on June 3rd along with Montana and New Mexico's Republican primary.
