Representative Kristi Noem fills supporters in on future

Posted:

Republican Kristi Noem will remain in South Dakota's lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives after her win Tuesday night.

Noem -- in her acceptance speech in Sioux Falls - thanked the people of South Dakota for giving her two more years to represent them on Capitol Hill.

The Republican said while there's reason to celebrate, there's still a lot of work in Washington D.C. to get done.

"We need a strong and a passionate voice in Washington D-C and I'll continue to do that for our families, for our businesses and our agriculture community," said Representative Noem. "But we have a lot of this to do yet, we've got a lot of things that we need to accomplish."

Noem says she'll work to manage the nation's debt crisis, put an end to the death tax and most importantly, to get a farm bill passed. Her Democratic challenger Matt Varilek- who lost by 18 percentage points- called Noem Tuesday night to concede.

Varilek says while he didn't get the results he had hoped for, he says the causes he fought for in the race will not end with his campaign.
