At a large gathering of social conservatives in Iowa, the governor of South Dakota speaks
Republican Governor Kristi Noem, South Dakota: She’s counting on Trump’s return to the White House in 2024.
Trump’s strong ally and conservative governor, the conservative governor, said Friday to Fox News that Trump “had America right there we needed her.” His policies were correct. Therefore, I count on him running.”
Noem spoke just minutes before she addressed 10th Annual Family Leadership Summit. This summit is hosted by Family Leader, an Iowa-based, top-ranking social conservative organization of evangelicals.
Noem is being considered by political pundits as a potential contender for the Republican nomination in 2024, particularly if Trump does not launch a White House campaign. Her stop in Iowa, where the presidential caucuses have been held for over a century, has sparked speculation about her national ambitions.
“It’s my neighbouring state. “I’m always here. She said that she was only there earlier in the week. Noem pointed to Iowa’s GOP governor and said, “Kim Reynolds asked me to attend this conference, and I said yes, I’ll do whatever for Kim.”
Noem is up for reelection in 2020. She has been a hero for conservatives for her resistance against the coronavirus pandemic restrictions. “We were the only state to not close one business. She stated in her speech that she didn’t shelter in places. “We didn’t require anything. “We just trusted people.”
The governor said that the increase in COVID cases is a concern for unvaccinated Americans. She also told Fox News that she was continuing to monitor South Dakota’s COVID hospitalizations, but that her state overall is “in good health.”
When asked about the reinstatement in Los Angeles of the mask mandate due to the Delta variant’s potent surge, Noem stated that “putting in more mandates would not be the best answer.”
Noem highlighted her social conservative credentials in her address. She stated, “I have made a commitment to be the most prolife governor there is.” “I believe that I am still the only governor of the country with a staff member whose job is to advocate for unborn children.”
She said that she also “prays back to our schools.”
According to the governor, her favorite song is “Battle Hymn of the Republic”. She stated, “We need a country that has people who are faithful in difficult times,”
Then, she concluded her appearance by leading the crowd in singing the song.
Noem also used her speech – just like she did one week before at a speech at CPAC in Dallas, Texas – to attack President Biden’s Democratic administration.
“Joe Biden’s America. . . “It is built on hatred, division, on pitting individuals against each other, it is shameful to watch the violence, the crime, the lack of unity.” she stated.
