— -- Joining Richard Nixon, George H.W. Bush and Bill Clinton, President Obama has finally traveled to his 50th state -- South Dakota -- today as he visited the Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown to deliver a commencement address.
"I can’t let my South Dakota friends feel neglected,” Obama told KSFY-TV, ABC’s Sioux Falls affiliate, at the White House in April.
Though Obama visited the state as a senator, seeing Mount Rushmore with wife, Michelle Obama, and kids, Sasha and Malia, this is his first time returning as Commander-in-Chief.
