PIERRE - The two candidates battling over the Republican governor nomination will go to opposite corners Tuesday night to wait to see who wins.

U.S. Rep. Kristi Noem wants supporters to join her at the Hilton Garden Inn Downtown in Sioux Falls starting at 8:30 p.m. CT.

State Attorney General Marty Jackley plans to spend election night in Rapid City and then a bar in his hometown.

"He will be at Hotel Alex Johnson when the results start to come in, then finish his night in Sturgis at the Loud American," Jackley spokesman Joe Schartz said.

Noem issued her invitation in an email to her backers. She wrote: "It would mean the world to us to be surrounded by such loyal supporters and friends on this important night."

The two continued to fight in TV ads Monday over Jackley's role regarding former investigator Laura Kaiser.

A federal jury recently awarded $1.5 million to Kaiser for discrimination that occurred when she worked for the state Division of Criminal Investigation that Jackley oversees.

Jackley said again Sunday he wasn't involved.

The winner faces state Senate Democratic leader Billie Sutton. The state constitution bars Republican Gov. Dennis Daugaard from seeking a third consecutive term.
