The Day in South Dakota politics

Today, in 1916, Joseph Robbie Jr. was born in Sisseton South Dakota.

Among his accomplishments, Joseph served as a Democratic House member of the legislature from Mitchell from 1949-1950, and also did a stint as Chair of the SDDP in 1948. In the early 1950s, this young trial lawyer made an unsuccessful bid to become the Governor of South Dakota.

Don't feel too bad for him. With his partners, he bought the Miami Dolphins in 1965.

See? There's life after politics.
