Daugaard seems empathetic but will probably sign anti-trans bill into law

Dennis Daugaard
South Dakota's Republican governor, Dennis Daugaard, spoke with several young transgender people and one of their mothers on Tuesday. The Center for Equality reports that he listened, asked questions and was genuinely engaged.

After the meeting concluded, Daugaard said: “It helped me see things through their eyes a little bit and understand their perspective.”

He also said: “Of course, I have my own set of values. They're going to, in the end, drive the decision with the information I have.” Daugaard doesn't seem to be a professional Christian but he is a Republican and Republicans uniformly – and disingenuously – that transgender accommodations are a threat to public safety. I hope that I am wrong.
