Candidates who are vying to win enough votes to represent South Dakota in the House of Representatives made a pit stop on the campaign trail in Mitchell, SD for a debate at Dakotafest. Representative Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin, Republican challenger Kristi Noem and independent B. Thomas Marking, discussed the hot topics that face farmers, ranchers and small businesses today.

These topics included the cap and trade energy policy, renewable energy sources, health care reform and estate tax. The leading ladies in the debate, Noem and Herseth-Sandlin, duked it out on all issues, but one area where they had strong opposing positions was on estate tax – often referred to as “death tax.” The estate tax affects all farming and ranching families across the country.
