South Dakota Democratic U.S. House candidate Matt Varilek says Republican Rep. Kristi Noem supports tax policies that protect the wealthy and changes in Medicare that would hurt many retired people.
Noem counters that Varilek supports increasing taxes on many middle-class South Dakotans and cutting Medicare to support President Barack Obama's health care overhaul.
The two candidates for South Dakota's lone seat in the U.S. House clashed on many issues Thursday night in a debate televised statewide by South Dakota Public Broadcasting. Each accused the other of using untrue attacks in the campaign, and both sought to portray themselves as best able to understand the hopes and fears of the average South Dakotan.
Noem and Varilek have only one more scheduled debate before the Nov. 6 election.
