Candidates for South Dakota governor say they want to clean up corruption

     SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - Two opposing South Dakota gubernatorial candidates say they want to clean alleged corruption statewide and limit the federal government's power over the state.
     Former state Rep. Lora Hubbel and former University of South Dakota law professor Mike Myers called a joint news conference Wednesday.
     The candidates say South Dakota is the second most corrupt state in the nation according to Fox Business Network.
     Myers told the audience that two major hospitals in the area should pay more property taxes. 
     Hubbel says she wants to start a volunteer sheriff's organization that will keep the federal government out. She says local sheriffs are South Dakotan's best protection against federal officials. 
     Hubbel is challenging Gov. Dennis Daugaard in the Republican primary. Myers is running as an independent.
