What's On Voters' Minds?

June 3, 2008, 4:31 PM by Don Jorgensen

What's On Voters' Minds?
It's not a big election as far as the number of statewide races are concerned, but nonetheless it's an important primary election for voters.

Even though Barack Obama is close to clinching the Democratic nomination, that's not stopping Hillary Clinton supporters from voting.

"I wanted to vote for Hillary, just because I feel bad for her because I think she's going to lose I think it's pretty much over for her," said Pam Bessy of Sioux Falls. 

But regardless of who wins tonight, voters we talked with want change, like an end to the war in Iraq. 

"They haven't found any weapons of mass destruction but I'm glad they got Saddam if McCain gets in we're going to stay over there for 100 years, if Hillary or Obama get in probably be there for at least five," said Andy Van Veen of Sioux Falls. 

Van Veen has been affected personally by the war. 

"I have a brother just left Iraq so I'm glad he's coming back," said Van Veen. 

Others are driven to the polls by the economy. 

"More jobs, gas prices I think that's the biggest thing right now," said Bessy. 

"Gas prices are way too high, I think she should push for more refineries like down in Elk Point I wish I could vote on that not just Elk Point, I wish the whole state could have voted on that," said Susie Oberg of Sioux Falls. 

"I hope Hyperion gets passed but I don't get to vote on that, said Van Veen. 

While one Republican told us, he came out to vote because it's his patriotic duty. 

"I usually do that's the main reason, there wasn't anything in particular interested me, other than the Democratic contest and I couldn't vote on that," said Jon Skaarhaug.
