Noem and Varilek prepare for televised debate Thursday night

Posted: Updated:

Candidates vying for South Dakota's lone seat in the United State's House of Representatives, Kristi Noem and Matt Varilek will face off in a televised debate in just under two hours.

We talked with both candidates campaign managers about Thursday night's debate which is set for 8 p.m. on the University of South Dakota's campus in Vermillion. It's being put on by South Dakota Public Broadcasting.

This will be the first televised debate we will see between these two candidates.

Varilek's campaign manager says "Varilek will remind folks that he is the only candidate in this race who will fight to strengthen the middle class, protect medicare and social security, and keep the promises we made to our veterans. He understands the importance of hard work and the power of education, and he will fight for those middle-class values in Washington."

Kristi Noem says, "I look forward to tonight's debate and making the case why South Dakotans should support me on November 6. Our country faces serious challenges, including a mountain of debt that is threatening the American dream. As I'll make clear in tonight's debate, I am the one candidate in the race with the experience to address these challenges and move South Dakota forward."

The debate will last an hour.

We will bring you the latest on KSFY News at 10:00.
