New today from Rasmussen Reports:
Republican Lieutenant Governor Dennis Daugaard now holds a 17-point lead over likely Democratic nominee Scott Heidepriem in South Dakota’s race for governor. But the Democrat maintains modest leads over two other GOP hopefuls.
A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely South Dakota voters shows Daugard leading Heidepriem, the State Senate minority leader, 49% to 32%. Six percent (6%) prefer some other candidate, and 13% are undecided.
Last month, Daugaard posted a narrower 41% to 32% lead.
