AdWatch: S.D. accepts out-of-state professional licenses

Gov. Kristi Noem launched a new ad as part of the "Freedom Works Here" nationwide workforce recruitment campaign: "Bright Side" [aired during the first Republican presidential debate]:

[Narration by Gov. Noem with the Governor inspecting an electrical circuit box with a flashlight]: "Letís look on the bright side: South Dakota stayed open for business during the pandemic. Now, weíve got more jobs than people!"

[Governor flips a switch and lights go on to reveal the Governor wearing electrician's overalls]: "So, Iím filling in -- until you get here. South Dakota's the freest state in America, and the best state to live, work, and raise a family. We accept most out-of-state professional licenses. And we have over 20,000 open jobs, including for electricians."

[Voiceover as Governor closes circuit box and lights go off, panning to neighborhood lights sequentially going off]: "South Dakota--Freedom Works Here."

[Governor's voice in the dark]: "Oh, no; I'm a lousy electrician."

Keep right-to-work laws instead of labor unions

The Kristi Noem campaign issued a news release titled, "Unions Bet Big on Democrat Billie Sutton as Big Labor Works to Overturn Right to Work."

The news release said unions have contributed more than $10,000 to Sutton's campaign. The release also highlighted a tweet by the South Dakota Democratic Party that celebrated Tuesday's rejection of a so-called "right to work" law by voters in Missouri. The law would have banned compulsory union fees in that state.

South Dakota has a right-to-work law, which Noem supports. "That's why we're seeing out-of-state union heads investing thousands into Billie Sutton's campaign," the news release said. "He's their best bet to repeal the state's decades old right-to-work laws and force South Dakotans into labor unions they don't want to be a part of."
