Woman To Challenge Rep. Noem In GOP House Primary

February 3, 2012, 9:47 AM

RAPID CITY, SD - A Rapid City woman says she plans to challenge Rep. Kristi Noem in a Republican primary for South Dakota's lone seat in the U.S. House.

Forty-six-year-old Stephanie Strong says she is collecting the 1,955 signatures she needs to put her name on the June 5 primary ballot. 

Strong has owned several businesses with her husband. She says she believes government should reduce business regulations. 

Strong is the only announced Republican challenger to Noem, who defeated Democratic Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin in 2010.

Noem recently announced she has raised more than $1.3 million for her re-election bid.

Candidates for the Democratic nomination to run for the House are Matt Varilek, a former member of U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson's staff, and Minnehaha County Commissioner Jeff Barth.
