  1. A great kick off for Mayor ‘s 100 days 100 miles fitness challenge. There are few things I love more than getting moving out in our beautiful state — especially with fellow South Dakotans!

  2. This is what an *infrastructure* plan looks like.

  3. Bipartisanship is possible (when ideas are reasonable, policies smart, & spending purposeful).

  4. . is a champion of conservative values & building economic opportunities for every American. He’s a rock-solid choice to deliver the Republican response to President Biden, who I expect will call for even more irresponsible spending & nanny-state policies.

  6. House Dems just voted to make D.C. the 51st state, trampling on another important intention of our Founding Fathers: our capital’s independence from any one state. Beyond this they’re blatantly ignoring that their law is unconstitutional – only an amendment can make D.C. a state.

  7. Let’s be clear – Democrats plan to expand the number of justices to pack the Supreme Court with judges who’ll legislate from the bench in favor of their liberal agenda. I hope at least some of my D colleagues will find the courage to stand against this idea.

  8. Democrats' plan to increase the number of justices because they're upset that did our duty to confirm qualified SCOTUS nominees is dangerous for our democracy. Americans are growing tired of their “if we don’t get our way, we’ll change the rules” attitude.

  9. The concept of court-packing doesn’t deserve a second of time on the floor of the House or Senate. The only place it belongs is in the ash heap of history.

  10. Pres. Biden's trillion-dollar "infrastructure" proposal stretches the meaning of infrastructure far beyond how most South Dakotans define it. You should be straight with the American people if you’re planning one of the largest tax hikes in generations.

  11. Dakota Marker returns to S.D. and the Jacks are MVFC champs. Congrats!

  13. Finally got a chance to tour the new Terex facility in Watertown. The building opened last May at the start of the pandemic and production has skyrocketed since. So glad that Terex has put down strong roots in a business friendly state like South Dakota.

  14. Appreciate the opportunity to speak to folks at the National Guard Association of South Dakota’s annual meeting in Watertown. Gave them a quick update on my work to support our men and women in uniform.

  15. Met with Watertown officials about  decision that threatens reliable air travel for Pierre & Watertown. This DOT action is a bombshell for South Dakotans & local businesses in these communities. DOT will be hearing from my office & community leaders to discuss our concerns.

  16. Conditions at our southern border are dire – Ds can't deny it, so they’re trying to hide it (by blocking press). Pres. Biden & VP should find time to see it. Maybe then they'll make needed policy changes. Until they do, good efforts by are just band-aids on a cracked hull.

  17. If Democrats want to make impactful infrastructure investments, how about resuming (already paid for) wall construction at the southern border? Let’s start there.

  18. I confess I had missed the part in the Constitution that said the Supreme Court is only legitimate if a majority of its members were nominated by a Democrat president – or at least reliably deliver liberals’ preferred outcomes.

  19. Not sure the grands tune in every week to Chris Wallace and , but they were especially interested in this morning’s discussion on infrastructure.

  20. Just toured the new Ascent Innovation Center, which is expanding on the success of the incubator at . They're doing great work to foster the fantastic high-tech innovation & entrepreneurship we're already seeing in Rapid. Great to see these investments made in South Dakota.
