Noem and Varilek in Sioux Falls talking with voters

Posted: Updated:

South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem was spending part of her weekend on the campaign trail.

We met up with the republican outside before the Augustana College vs. University of Sioux Falls football game started.

She was out there talking to voters.

"We just spend our time talking to people and the issues that concern them and the challenges we have in this country but let them know what my stance is," Kristi Noem said.

On the other side of Sioux Falls Noem's challenger Democrat Matt Varilek was also campaigning on Saturday.

We caught up with him at the United Way's Reading Festival at the Ramkota.

These next few weeks are crunch time for the candidates.

"We're really not doing anything very different from the beginning of the campaign. We try to get out and travel the state and meet as many people face-to-face and that's what we're doing today," Matt Varilek said. 

Both are vying for South Dakota's lone seat in the US House of Representatives.

Both Varilek and Noem hashed it out in an hour long televised debate Thursday night.

It was held on the University of South Dakota's campus.

It was put on by South Dakota Public Broadcasting.
