Governor's debate...Just reading the reports and I see this in the Argus story.
"None of the audience-submitted questions chosen by the moderator addressed EB-5."
The Farmers Union has a reputation as being a leftist organization and, in any event, the topic was big in Sioux Falls media last weekend. I'm fairly confident if the moderator had gotten an intelligent question on EB-5 she would have used it. I appreciate Ms. Wismer's decision not to shoehorn it in. The only mention, according to the Argus was by suicide re-enactment guru Mike Myers.
The optics are not good for the EB-5 strategy. It says, 1) After all the publicity and pushing on it, the issue has not caught on with the public; and 2) the issue belongs to the sort of fringe candidate who thinks Lora Hubbel is a political asset.
Perhaps it's because Ms. Wismer doesn't really believe in the strategy.
