(Pierre, SD) -- Campaign finance reports are showing the cost of South Dakota Governor Kristi Noem's out-of-state political trips.

The reports include more than 98-thousand dollars in travel expenses for trips outside of South Dakota during 2021 and the first half of 2022. The reports were filed with the Federal Election Commission by the Noem Victory Fund and by the Keeping Republican Ideas Strong, Timely and Inventive Committee.

The next set of reports are due in October.

Noem had come under fire from political opponents in recent months for overspending and under-reporting her travel expenses.
