SDP focuses on national politics with a special emphasis on South Dakota. It also includes posts on philosophy, science and culture. SDP was founded by Jason Van Beek, who stopped blogging after becoming a staffer for Sen. John Thune (R-SD) and is currently operated by Ken Blanchard.
The Argus Leader recently published a profile of Commissioner-elect Dusty Johnson, the newest member of the South Dakota Public Utilities Commission, headlined "New face in GOP." The AP also published the profile.
Dusty Johnson, a candidate for the Public Utilities Commission, and a good friend of SDP, was campaigning on 41st Street in Sioux Falls today. Here are some pictures:
Dusty's working hard, and I know he'll work even harder as a PUC commissioner. Dusty cares passionately about South Dakota, and his expertise in rural development is badly needed at the PUC. Dusty's one of the smartest blokes I know, and he's certainly the most energetic bloke I know. Plus he's just a good guy. He deserves your vote on November 2.
Sibby has a great post about Dusty Johnson, the Republican candidate for the Public Utilities Commission. Dusty is a longtime friend and fellow USD alumnus, and one of the smartest guys I know. Be sure to help him out in any way you can as the election approaches.
