The two candidates for South Dakota's lone congressional seat faced off Tuesday night in a debate.

In Sioux Falls, incumbent Republican Kristi Noem and Democratic challenger Paula Hawks squared off on a wide range of topics.

Noem defended her support of Donald Trump for president, saying the actions of Hillary Clinton disqualify her.

Hawks questions how anyone can support Trump after his recorded comments about women.

The two also disagreed on Noem's decision to move from the Agriculture Committee to the House Ways and Means Committee.
