By 10:00 p.m. Tuesday night, South Dakota voters could have a clear idea of who will be the Republican nominee for governor.
On Monday the two candidates, Attorney General Marty Jackley and Congresswoman Kristi Noem, had their final full day on the campaign trail before polls open across KELOLAND on Monday morning.
Each of the two candidates made stops in Sioux Falls on Monday around the same time just a few blocks from each other. KELOLAND News asked each candidate the same question: what are you doing on the last full day on the campaign trail before voters go to the polls on Tuesday?
“We’re here in Sioux Falls right now, we’re going to be here all night, in fact I’m going to go watch my son’s baseball game here in a few minutes, and then all morning we’re going to be in Sioux Falls talking to supporters, getting volunteers energized, and continuing to work hard,” Jackley said.
“We’ve been traveling the entire state, making stops in towns, talking to voters, holding rallies, and answering questions that they may have before they go and vote tomorrow. So for me, it’s incredibly important that they know that they have a real choice in this primary,” Noem said.
Both candidates are looking ahead to what the primary election day brings.
“I’m going to leave in midafternoon, head to Rapid City, as well as Sturgis,” Jackley said.
“I’m looking forward to sleeping in my own bed tonight, and we’ll get up tomorrow morning and go with my entire family to vote,” Noem said.
