South Dakota’s Governor Wants a Presidential Debate to be Held Before Voting Starts


We have yet to see a debate between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

The first debate between the two will be September 29th which will be 11 days after voters in South Dakota hit the polls.

Governor Noem of South Dakota wants to fix this problem and has invited both President Trump and Joe Biden to South Dakota to have their first debate in the first week of September.

NewsCenter1 said this about the Governor inviting President Trump and Joe Biden to South Dakota:

PIERRE, S.D. — On Saturday, Governor Kristi Noem posted to Twitter saying South Dakota is open for a presidential debate.

Attached to the tweet was an image of a letter addressed to the Commission of Presidential Debates signed by Gov. Noem, along with Senator John Thune, Senator Mike Rounds, and Congressman Dusty Johnson.

The letter to the members of the commission requests an additional, earlier debate be held in South Dakota this September to give voters a chance to hear each candidate’s platforms firsthand, as the first debate isn’t to be held until September 29 – 11 days after South Dakota voters will have already started voting.

“South Dakotans who vote early deserve the same opportunity afforded to voters in other states, which is to hear the two competing visions for our country and make a well-informed decision when casting their vote at the ballot box – especially when one candidate has spent the duration of the campaign avoiding voters and questions from the press,” states the letter.

The main concern stated in the letter is that Gov. Noem, Sen. Thune, Sen. Rounds, and Rep. Johnson want a fair chance for voters in the upcoming election.

The WestRiverEagle reported this about Governor Noem requesting a debate be held in South Dakota:

On Aug. 8, Governor Kristi Noem and the South Dakota Congressional Delegation sent a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates asking that an early debate be held in South Dakota next month.

The first Presidential debate will take on Sep. 29, 11 days after South Dakota voters will have already started voting.

“South Dakotans who vote early deserve the same opportunity afforded to voters in other states, which is to hear the two competing visions for our country and make a well-informed decision when casting their vote at the ballot box – especially when one candidate has spent the duration of the campaign avoiding voters and questions from the press,” states the letter.

Giving voters in the state a “fair chance” in this year’s unprecedented election was an important point of the letter.

“This monumental election will determine the very future of our nation. The least we can do is equip voters with the facts necessary to aid them in electing the next president of the United States,” stated the letter.

I believe it’s fair to the American voters to be able to hear President Trump and Joe Biden have a debate before they vote.

I can already imagine it now, Biden will be fumbling through papers that his staff gave to him, while Trump answers on the fly with ease. A debate will also expose Biden’s cognitive decline which is why the left has been ducking a debate.
