“Now make no mistake,” Noem told supporters. “I think we need a strong dose of fiscal conservatism in Washington, D.C.”



In an interview early this morning, Noem said “I think my message resonated with the people, and I think because I run a lot of small businesses and farm, that meant a lot to people.”

“I also think they were frustrated with the way things were run in Washington, D.C., with the Democrats in charge.”

Herseth Sandlin also maintained a constant drumbeat on Noem’s driving record, which includes 20 speeding tickets in the last decade and failure to appear in court six times.

Bob Gray, chairman of the Republican Party of South Dakota, said voter frustration with Obama and the Democrat-controlled Congress certainly played a role in this election.

“Kristi was a great candidate,” Gray said. “You don’t win a statewide race without a great candidate.”
