South Dakota's Young Candidates At GOTV Rally

Our son Matt telling the GOTV crowd in Sioux Falls, SD, tonight that when elected to the state Public Utilities Commission he will represent farmers and everyday rate-paying consumers, and get rid of big utility expenses like a private jet and other high-end perks that are folded into the rates.

He did not take donations from lobbyists or people working in the regulated industries: his opponent, a commissioner by appointment, sat on the board of the XCEL Corp., the state's largest utility.

To Matt's left in the photo: US Sen. Tim Johnson, (D), and Matt Varilek, Democratic candidate for the US House of Representatives. He is running against a First-term Tea Partier.
