GOP Senator Expresses Concern That Noem’s Dog Shooting Incident May Impact Voter Perception if Chosen as Trump’s Running Mate

South Dakota GOP Sen. Mike Rounds expressed concern that Gov. Kristi Noem’s revelation of shooting a dog on her family farm could harm her if chosen as Donald Trump’s running mate. Noem described openly killing the 14-month-old dog in her book, citing it as necessary due to being untrainable and dangerous. Rounds, a dog owner, believes this could negatively impact public opinion. Other South Dakota lawmakers had varying responses, with Rep. Dusty Johnson defending Noem’s actions in a rural context. Mitt Romney took a jab at Trump, criticizing his potential choice for vice president. Noem has also mentioned shooting a goat in her book.
