Republican House candidate Kristi Noem says she wants to become South Dakota's lone member of the U.S. House to help cut federal spending and repeal the health care reform measure recently passed by Congress.
In a speech to the Republican State Convention in Huron, Noem said Democratic Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin has not represented South Dakota's interests because she voted for the stimulus measure and other things that have increased the federal deficit.
Herseth Sandlin says she is a moderate because she has voted against some spending measures and the health care bill.
Noem says if she is elected, she would support repealing the health care bill.
