Governor Kristi Noem

Proven conservative leadership

Kristi Noem is a wife, mother, grandmother, rancher, farmer, small business owner, and New York Times bestselling author of "Not My First Rodeo: Lessons from the Heartland."

Governor Kristi Noem’s political career began with her 2006 election to the South Dakota State Legislature followed by her move to the United States House of Representatives and finally a return to Pierre as the state’s first female Governor. Each new office brought an ever-evolving set of responsibilities, but the mission has remained constant – make South Dakota a better place. Every policy decision and executive strategy is undertaken with that end goal in mind.

Like so many who were raised in South Dakota, the concept of family drives Governor Noem’s principles. The values instilled in her as a child, the ideals she lives by today, and the vision she holds for the future are all linked to a strong family foundation. Preserving and strengthening an environment that allows families to thrive is central to achieving that vision, and Governor Noem has proven that a conservative government approach fosters that environment.

South Dakota is a better place when the economy is strong, when government is limited, and when people are free to exercise their God-given rights. Governor Noem fought against federal tax increases, and she is fiercely protective of preserving a system of no state income tax. She’s a staunch supporter of the Second Amendment and is steadfast in maintaining Constitutional carry rights. She’s unwavering in her commitment to personal freedom and will always fight against government intrusion.

Nothing, however, exceeds Governor Noem’s dedication to raising her three children Kassidy, Kennedy and Booker with her husband, Bryon. All have a deep love for their family and an even deeper love for the Lord. The prosperity of South Dakota is important to her for the same reason it’s important to everyone else in the state – it’s home.

Under Governor Noem’s leadership, South Dakota has served as a great example to the nation of what can be accomplished when you follow the governing philosophies our founders set in place. God bestows individual liberty and people should be able to exercise their freedoms without bureaucratic interference. Government’s role is to serve the people, working for them to provide opportunities for a better future. With Governor Noem, the focus will always be on making South Dakota a better place.



Above all, Kristi Noem is proud of her family–Her husband of 30 years, Bryon, her three children, their spouses, and her granddaughter! Her first priority and best accomplishment is her family, their love for eachother, and faith in God.
