Ray Hendryx and Steve

He noted, somewhat tongue-in-cheek, that the sitting Minnesota governor, a Democrat, should be among the finalists for South Dakota's entrepreneurial award. The speaker contended -- due to oppressive taxation and otherinconsiderations -- that the Minnesota governor had been as influential as anyone else in South Dakota's business and industry growth during the past year, much of it transplanted from its eastern neighbor. At the very least, he suggested, South Dakota could set aside a day to recognize his achievements.
