VERMILLION, S.D.(WNAX)- A Vermillion man is taking the first steps to become a democratic candidate for Governor.
Barry Hulse has filed campaign paperwork with the Secretary of States Office.
He says its time for a different direction for the state.
Hulse says state government has been on the same path for quite a while.
While facing long odds, Hulse says he got some advice from former democratic Senator Tom Daschle.
Hulse says it will be a challenge to get the sixteen hundred petition signatures needed before the end of March.
