MegaKota, A Petition to Unite North and South Dakota

A petition to merge the two Dakotas is gaining steam online.

A user with the name Dillan Stewart started the petition to “Donald Trump” (sic) two days ago, aiming to merge North and South Dakota into 'MegaKota.'

As of early Tuesday morning, the petition had more than 2,900 user signatures. It has a goal of reaching 5,000.

One user from New York who signed the petition wrote, "MegaKota is the advancement of American Society we needed to unify Republicans and Democrats alike in this time of political turmoil.

MegaKota is the state we need, and the state this country deserves." But, the petition's author cited his reason for starting it, that "I think itd be pretty cool to have a state called MegaKota so yeah" (sic).
