South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem (R) may be crafting her attacks against Republicans for 2024, or she could just be snubbing them for kicks. Either way, Noem attacked Republican governors who closed down their states in 2020 during the COVID-19 crisis.
During her speech to the 2021 CPAC conference, she attacked people like Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL) for closing his state and now pretending like he didn't.
"Let's talk about rewriting history. We've got Republican Governors across the country pretending they didn't shut down their states ... that they didn't close their beaches," she said.
DeSantis scored 68 percent in the CPAC straw poll on Sunday, and Noem didn't even place, so she would have to bring down DeSantis to come close to being a presidential contender. That said, it's still extremely early for 2024.
