House candidates support spending cuts

PIERRE — Rep. Stephanie Herseth Sandlin, D-S.D., and the three Republicans seeking their party’s nomination to run against her all agree federal spending should be cut, but they have different ideas on how to bring the budget under control.
The three Republicans have focused much of their campaigns on criticizing President Obama and Congress for driving up the national debt. Secretary of State Chris Nelson, state Rep. Blake Curd of Sioux Falls and state Rep. Kristi Noem of Castlewood face each other in the June 8 primary, with the winner to square off against Herseth Sandlin in the fall election for South Dakota’s lone seat in the U.S. House.
