And now a message from Bryon Noem:
We've got a busy few days ahead of us on the campaign trail!
My wife Kristi will be participating in two debates in the coming week, starting with the Rapid City Journal Debate on Tuesday, October 14th and then the South Dakota Public Broadcasting Congressional Debate on Thursday, October 16th.
We're hoping for a big crowd at the Rapid City Journal Debate (University Center - 4300 Cheyenne Blvd.) and hope you’ll join our team at the pre-debate rally at 11:00am. Wear a Kristi for Congress t-shirt or pick one up at the event and cheer Kristi on before the noon debate.
On Thursday, you can tune-in to the South Dakota Public Broadcasting Congressional Debate at 7:00pm (MT) on TV and online (http://sdpb.org). It will also be aired on public radio the next day at 11:00am (MT).
This is an exciting opportunity for Kristi to discuss the issues, the progress she's made in Congress, and the challenges that still lie ahead. We're looking forward to these debates and hope you are too!
What issues would you like Kristi to talk about? Join the conversation on Facebook and Twitter today to share your thoughts and tune-in next week!
Thank you for your support.

I am pleased that Bryon and Kristi both recognize that debating in Rapid City is an "exciting opportunity" to "discuss the issues." And heck, Congresswoman Noem is making that trip even though she has held stable double-digit leads over her Democratic challenger Corinna Robinson in every poll this year, including the poll Robinson herself touted last spring as demonstrating her path to victory.
Dang, maybe the SDGOP should have gotten Noem to run for the Senate and let some less qualified Republican luck his way into the House seat.
