South Dakota’s Noem launches legal strategy to take on Biden

Local News

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem is likely to stay among conservative politicians favored by former President Donald Trump with the help of an unusual strategy for a governor. She is headlining the state’s legal battles.

Noem in recent weeks has picked legal fights with President Joe Biden’s administration that hit on issues sure to please her conservative base: Fourth of July fireworks and climate change regulations.

It’s a way the governor has melded the state’s fortunes with her own political profile.

The tactic has given her opportunities to cast herself as one of Biden’s most prominent political combatants.
