"Republicans, who dominate South Dakota's government, object to a provision of the measure that would create taxpayer-funded credits that voters could use to contribute to their preferred candidates. In his state budget address, Gov. Dennis Daugaard (R) said that meant nearly $5 million in funding would have to come out of other parts of an already-stretched budget."

Out of education and into the pockets of politicians? And the politicians voted against it?

Wouldn't they vote for it, if they were doing whats best for them?

The politicians being Republicans and the former opinion being that of the Republican leader, keep in mind they get far more money from private sources and they fear personal losses from that and what they don't mention: "The measure includes increased penalties for campaign finance and lobbying violations, and it would create an independent ethics commission to administer the voucher program and police state legislators."
