PRO-LIFE DEMS RUNNING AT ALL LEVELS
State Senator Billie Sutton is running for Governor of South Dakota.
We are very pleased to announce a second pro-life Democrat running for governor of a state, to join the ranks of Joshua Svaty of Kansas. South Dakota state senate Democratic leader Billie Sutton is running for governor of South Dakota.
Billie Sutton is a pro-life Democrat who is being called a conservative because of his position on abortion. Ironically, like Governor John Bel Edwards of Louisiana, he is more of a traditional Democrat who supported Obamacare, sponsored a bill for state-funded pre-school, and fought for scholarships for low-income families.

South Dakota is a prime example of running the right person for the district. South Dakota used to be a Democratic stronghold, but now Republicans control the state senate by a 27-8 majority and the state house, where they have held a supermajority since 1976, by 58 to 12.
This could be a big win for Democrats if they get behind Billie. Only 5 of 32 governors have been Democrats. The most famous was pro-life Democrat Richard Kneip, who was elected three times, serving from 1971 to 1978. Democrats have not won since then.
