SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) – Democrat Matt Varilek has pulled his television ads blasting Republican Rep. Kristi Noem in the final days of their race for South Dakota’s lone seat in the U.S. House.
The 37-year-old former congressional staffer said Monday he pulled his negative ads on Saturday and believes voters will appreciate his decision to run only positive TV ads in the final days of the campaign.
Varilek has urged Noem to follow his lead, but she has continued to run ads criticizing him on taxes and other issues. The 40-year-old former state lawmaker says she wants people to know they have a clear choice in the election.
Noem and Varilek have fought a contentious race focusing on taxes, Medicare and President Barack Obama’s health care overhaul.
