SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – A South Dakota GOP campaign video depicting a Democratic House candidate as jet-setting around the globe to earn environmental degrees and hosting a “raucous” corn dog party has gone viral.
And both Democrats and Republicans are hoping the Web hits keep coming.
Democrat Matt Varilek says it’s goofy to criticize him for studying abroad and loving corn dogs and beer.
South Dakota GOP executive director Tony Post says the video successfully draws a stark contrast between Varilek and U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem.
The ad’s style is akin to a military intelligence briefing, jumping between Varilek’s travels and Noem staying in South Dakota to farm, raise a family, serve in the state Legislature and earn agriculture awards.
The “Dueling Visions” video had logged more than 108,000 views as of Monday morning.
