In a YouTube video, Governor Noem tells the voters of South Dakota that she was "humbled and honored three years ago when the people of South Dakota put their trust in me to lead our state as Governor." She is once again asking for their support for the next four years.

Unlike some previous governors in South Dakota, the nation got a glimpse of who Governor Kristi Noem is as a leader.  This is all thanks to her policies and strong stance during the COVID-19 pandemic. Despite these conflicting views, Governor Noem believes her policies are deeply rooted in the concept of family.

According to Governor Kristi Noem's Re-Election Campaign website, Governor Noem states "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." A platform focusing on family first appears to be what is driving Governor Noem's re-election campaign.
