Sioux River Republican Women, in conjunction with the South Dakota Federation of Republican Women and the Dakota Scout, hosted a fantastic event: the Property Rights & CO2 Pipelines Debate. As Austin Goss reported, "This was the first debate on eminent domain reform ever in (South Dakota)."
Almost 400 people showed up to hear how SD Representative Jon Hansen & Navigator CO2 Vice-President Elizabeth Burns-Thompson would respond to questions posed by moderator Sara Frankenstein. Since then, the event has been covered by traditional media in over 50 TV news stories, newspaper articles, radio interviews, podcasts, blogs, and posts. The story was picked up by Yahoo! News as well as local media in South Dakota, North Dakota, Nebraska, and Iowa. Additionally, our debate captured the attention of the grassroots, with over 100 individuals' Facebook posts and Tweets.
Here are photos from the night, along with a small sample of the news coverage that the debate generated.
