South Dakota Gov. Kristi Noem Refuses To Sign South Dakota’s Transgender Sports Ban Without Changes

Gov. Kristi Noem of South Dakota, an enthusiastic backer of former President Donald J. Trump who is seen as a possible 2024 presidential candidate, finds herself in the crossfire of a culture-war issue promoted by Mr. Trump: transgender students’ participation in sports. On Friday, Ms. Noem announced that she would not sign a bill passed by the Republican-controlled state legislature banning transgender girls and women from participating in girls’ or women’s sports at all levels — proposing instead that the restrictions apply to middle school and high school athletic competitions, but not college sports.

A shame that Governor Noem is getting it from all sides here because I’m a thousand-percent her heart’s in the right place and she wants bill done. But damn if she isn’t trying to be too hard to make sure the evil Left doesn’t get in the way.
