Varilek got McGovern endorsement

Matt Varilek, a Democrat who is running for against Republican Rep. Kristi Noem for South Dakota's lone House seat, noted his endorsement by the late former Sen. George McGovern in a statement Monday:

“South Dakota and the world have lost a true hero and statesman today. From his work in the U.S. Senate to his efforts to eradicate hunger, Sen. McGovern has been an inspiration to me, as he was to many who seek public office or share a passion for public service. I was humbled and honored to receive his endorsement in this race and to get to know him and his family these past few years. Sen. McGovern’s optimism for life and for the promise of what this country can accomplish will always have a lasting impression on me.”
