Gubernatorial Candidates Debate

The two major party candidates for South Dakota governor, Republican US Rep. Kristi Noem and Democrat South Dakota Sen. Billie Sutton, will face off in an hour-long moderated debate.

Veteran journalist Jack Marsh, former Rotary president, will pose the same set of questions to both candidates and enforce a uniform time limit on responses. At Marsh’s discretion and as time permits, some rebuttals will be accommodated. Questions won’t be shared in advance. This extended meeting of Sioux Falls Downtown Rotary will begin at noon and will adjourn by 1:15 p.m.

The KSFY/Gray Television group will air a 90-minute live broadcast of the debate on its companion station The CW channel, noon to 1:30 p.m., re-air a recorded broadcast on The CW channel, 9 p.m., Oct. 29, and then broadcast an edited version on the main KSFY channel, 4 p.m., Sunday, Nov. 4. The 90-minute program also will be streamed live on KSFY.com.

Sioux Falls Downtown Rotary meetings are open to the media, to all Rotarians and to guests of Rotarians.

Lunch is available at 11:30, $15 payable at the door, with the program starting at 12:00.
