The 2014 U.S. House of Representatives elections in South Dakota will take place on November 4, 2014. Voters will elect one candidate to serve in the U.S. House from the state's At-Large Congressional District. Incumbent Kristi Noem and retired Army officer Corinna Robinson ran unopposed in the primary election. Without a challenger, Noem, who has a significant lead in the fundraising, has been able to save her campaign funds for the general election. When the race heats up closer to November, Robinson will likely focus on Noem's role in the government shutdown.[1]

Key votes

Below are important votes Noem cast during the 113th Congress that will likely influence 2014 campaign discourse.

Government shutdown
See also: United States budget debate, 2013

Voted "Yes" On September 30, 2013, the House passed a final stopgap spending bill before the shutdown went into effect. The bill included a one-year delay of the Affordable Care Act's individual mandate and would have also stripped the bill of federal subsidies for congressional members and staff. It passed through the House with a vote of 228-201.[5] At 1 a.m. on October 1, 2013, one hour after the shutdown officially began, the House voted to move forward with going to a conference. In short order, Sen. Harry Reid rejected the call to conference.[6] Noem voted to approve the stopgap spending bill that would have delayed the individual mandate.[7]

Voted "No" The shutdown finally ended on October 16, 2013, when the House took a vote on HR 2775 after it was approved by the Senate. The bill to reopen the government lifted the $16.7 trillion debt limit and funded the government through January 15, 2014. Federal employees also received retroactive pay for the shutdown period. The only concession made by Senate Democrats was to require income verification for Obamacare subsidies.[8] The House passed the legislation shortly after the Senate, by a vote of 285-144, with all 144 votes against the legislation coming from Republican members. Noem voted against HR 2775.[9]
