Barth Concedes In Dem. U.S House Race

Barth Concedes In Dem. U.S House Race
Barth | Varilek

SIOUX FALLS, SD -

South Dakota Democrats have chosen Matt Varilek as their candidate to challenge Congresswoman Kristi Noem in November.

By looking at which counties supported Varilek compared to his opponent, Jeff Barth, it’s apparent Varilek had strong support in eastern South Dakota.  At this point, many of the votes from the western part of the state are still coming in.  In addition, there are not many votes reported from Minnehaha County, where Barth is a county commission member. 

Still, with 508 of 710 precincts reporting, Varilek had 73 percent of the votes.

That big margin prompted Barth to reach out to Varilek around 9 p.m. to concede the race.  Barth says Varilek is a worthy candidate to take on Noem in the fall.

Varilek is expected to address his supporters around 10 p.m.  You can watch that live on KELO-TV during special coverage of the primary election.  Visit the KELOLAND.com Primary Results page to review the numbers.
