SIOUX FALLS – Today South Dakota Republican Congressional Candidate Thad Wasson ended his campaign and endorsed Blake Curd as the best candidate to take on Stephanie Herseth Sandlin in November. Wasson’s statement is below:
I am ending my campaign to represent South Dakota in the U. S. House of Representatives. The overriding factor in this decision is that the best candidate for this job is Dr. Blake Curd.
Dr. Curd brings a wealth of experience to this position. He has served our nation honorably in the Air Force, he has run a successful business and met a payroll and understands the danger of government debt handed down to the next generation.
This campaign has brought many new and wonderful people into our lives. I wish to thank all of them for their time spent with me and also a special thanks to my wife, Michelle. Without her grace and support I would be nothing.
Blake Curd voiced his gratefulness for Wasson’s endorsement saying, “I respect Thad’s courage to enter into the political arena, and I am also very thankful for his support. This is a clear indicator of the momentum our campaign is producing. South Dakotans are fed up with politics as usual and are ready for leadership in Washington that understands fiscal responsibility is more than just a talking point.”
