Noem Wins Republican Nomination For Governor

Kristi Noem was victorious in last week’s primary election in South Dakota’s latest race for governor, according to KSFY News. Noem defeated South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley by a margin of approximately 16 points.

Noem has served as South Dakota’s Representative in the U.S. House of Representative for seven years, since her election in 2011. She hopes to use her experience in Washington D.C. to help South Dakota if elected governor. Kristi Noem would be the first female governor of South Dakota.

Noem will face Billie Sutton, the Democratic candidate in the general election. Sutton ran unopposed in the primary and has served as a state senator in South Dakota since 2010. His campaign is focused on government accountability and integrity.

The general election is scheduled to take place November 6th, 2018.
