(RAPID CITY, SD) — The political spotlight was on Rapid City, South Dakota, on Friday night, as the 45th President of the United States, Donald J. Trump, was in town for a fundraiser event for the South Dakota Republican Party.
Before Trump took the stage for a speech that lasted just under two hours, South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem energized the crowd by throwing her endorsement behind Trump.
“You made America great again once,” she said. “Let’s do it again. It is my honor to present to you the man in the arena. He is a man of significance. He is the leader, the fighter that our country needs. He has my full and complete endorsement for President of the United States of America. I will do everything I can to help him win and save this country.”
Those in political circles across the country have said Noem could potentially emerge as a possible running mate for Trump. The 51-year-old Republican recently told Fox News that she would consider joining a ticket with Trump.
