SIOUX FALLS, SD -
A former longtime economic development director for U.S. Sen. Tim Johnson is making his own run for Congress.
Matt Varilek on Friday announced he will seek the Democratic nomination to run for South Dakota's lone seat in the U.S. House. He joins Minnehaha County Commissioner Jeff Barth as declared candidates for the party endorsement to run against Republican Rep. Kristi Noem next year.
Varilek served as Johnson's economic development director for about seven years. In the private sector, he spent four years as a market analyst at an energy commodities brokerage. The Sioux Falls resident plans a statewide campaign kickoff tour early next year.
