AP Declares Noem Winner In U.S. House Race

AP Declares Noem Winner In U.S. House Race
Kristi Noem

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

Representative Kristi Noem will serve in the U.S. House for a second two-year term.

The Associated Press has declared Noem the winner over Democratic challenger Matt Varilek.

Varilek is a former member of Democratic Sen. Tim Johnson's staff. He argued throughout the campaign that Noem had shirked her duties by skipping committee meetings and failed to protect South Dakota's interests in getting a farm bill passed before Congress adjourned before the election.

Noem won with 58 percent of the votes.  Varilek finished with 42 percent.

Noem is 40-year-old rancher and former state lawmaker from Castlewood who was first elected to Congress as part of the 2010 Republican wave. She says she has worked to cut federal spending and taxes, has a 99 percent voting record in committees and did all she could to get a farm bill passed.
