Mike Rounds Quotation of the Day

Pat Powers tries to dig for something controversial about the Susan Wismer's announcement for Lieutenant Governor, Susy Blake.  He offers a random quotation from a 2012 issue of the Aberdeen American News which is not a direct quotation but a paraphrase from the newspaper.  To offer a counterbalance about the lead person running for Senator and Governor, I will be offering some quotations of the GOP candidates.  Let's see who has more interesting things to say.

I start with Mike Rounds on the EB-5 scandal from the Rapid City Journal: 

Former Gov. Mike Rounds offered an enthusiastic defense Wednesday of the state's now-shuttered immigrant investor program known as EB-5. 
Rounds, a Republican running for the Senate seat being vacated by Sen. Tim Johnson, discussed the issue with the Journal after speaking at a luncheon for the Family Heritage Alliance at the Bethel Assembly in Rapid City. 
"Personally, I hope they continue the EB-5 program," Rounds, 59, said. "Because it's one more tool available. We don't exactly have a lot of capital in South Dakota." (emphasis is mine)
Notice his support of EB-5 is in direct quotations.
