SDPB candidate videos: Districts 1-12

South Dakota Public Broadcasting has been doing a series of 2 minute candidate videos this year to help candidates bring their issues forward.

The more cynical among us might call them "don't cut our funding during the summer study" videos.

Click on any of the following links to view the candidate videos for those who traveled to Vermillion to get them done. And thank god that TV is not a dominant form of candidate communication in South Dakota.

Some candidates are relaxed and their spots are well done. Some are a bit... stiff.

There's one I watched today where I'd term the candidate "master thespian" with his ridiculous gestures and clear case of "acting" for the camera.

Regardless, check out these 2 minute videos in "Real Media Format," courtesy of South Dakota Public Broadcasting.

By the way, PP, I also did a 2-minute video (district 9), but you did not put a link to it.

I see I'm just in the wrong district.
PP said…
Rich - My apologies. I just did a "cut and paste" from what they have.

Where is Jim Hundstad's, PP!?

It appears that you are editing which candidates you want to share with us.

Head-in-his-own-anonymous: if you didn't bother to do your own research:

They didn't have one for him. Even though PP's a shill, he didn't leave anyone out.

Sorry PP...

I guess the question is: why didn't Hundstad do it?

Where's Waldo's??? Fahen and Koistenen 2 minute clip from Dis. 5?

Somebody must've told Hundstad he'd be wise "keep his mouth shut and be thought a fool, rather than open his mouth and remove all doubt.

PP, thank you for pointing us to this. For all those taking shots at Isaac Latterell, watch his clip. He demonstrates great vision & wisdom in his comments. He is a superior candidate.
