Gov. Kay Ivey welcomed South Dakota Republican Governor Kristi Noem to Alabama earlier today when her plane landed in Montgomery.

“I was proud to personally welcome my friend South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem to Alabama this afternoon,” said Ivey. “Both South Dakota and Alabama are two of the leading states and are showing the world what happens when you have strong, common sense leadership. I know Governor Noem will have a great visit.”

Noem is South Dakota’s first-ever female governor and was the lone Congressional representative of the state from 2010-2018. ALGOP said Noem is a “firm believer of personal rights and responsibility, preserving and strengthening an environment that allows families to thrive, and limited government.”
