Dems Running For SD US House Seat Make Final Push

Dems Running For SD US House Seat Make Final Push
Jeff Barth | Matt Varilek

The two candidates seeking the Democratic nomination for South Dakota's lone U.S. House seat are both claiming election-day momentum.

Thirty-seven-year-old Matt Varilek, a former member of Sen. Tim Johnson's staff, was facing 60-year-old Jeff Barth, a Minnehaha County Commissioner and retired telephone company technician. The winner challenges Republican Rep. Kristi Noem in the general election.

Both candidates spent Monday going door-to-door, visiting coffee shops and appearing on radio and television interviews.

Barth says he will spend Tuesday in county commission meetings. Varilek says he will continue calling voters to get them to the polls.

Varilek says his work for Johnson taught him how to get things done in Congress. Barth ran as an outsider, criticizing Congress for not getting anything done.
