A Republican has emerged in South Dakota to challenge the incumbent Kristi Noem for the state’s lone Congressional seat.
Stephanie Strong of Rapid City has revealed that she intends to challenge the first term Congresswoman who defeated Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin in a close race in 2010.
Mrs. Strong, a political newcomer, is a resident of the most conservative region of South Dakota west of the Missouri River. The “West River” region of South Dakota was the strongest area of support for Congresswoman Noem, who hails from Castlewood, SD in the eastern part of the state.
Additional information on the challenger will be forthcoming shortly on this site.
