Dakota Pathways Resources

While South Dakota may be a rural state with a small population, it has always had a national voice. That voice has been in the form of a number of political players in congress and beyond. This episode looks at the likes of Richard Pettigrew, Peter Norbeck, Gertrude Bonnin, Gladys Pyle, Karl Mundt and George McGovern to see just what it means to represent a state in Washington politics. Over the years we have had both liberal and conservative representation. It's politics South Dakota style.
