South Dakota Democratic candidate for governor Billie Sutton released a poll Thursday showing he's leading opponent Kristi Noem, a Republican, by 3 percentage points.

The polling firm ALG Research conducted the poll, which showed 45-42 in favor of Sutton.

"We've felt the energy in this race as Republicans, Independents, and Democrats alike tell me they're frustrated with the stale and complacent culture in state government and are ready to end politics as usual," Sutton, of Burke, said in a statement. "This race is about working together to clean up state government, creating economic opportunities, and building a stronger South Dakota, and that message is resonating with folks across the state and across the political spectrum."

Noem's campaign manager Justin Brasell responded by calling it a "partisan poll done by progressive Democrats to boost fundraising as he continues to sell a fake bill of goods."

"He calls himself 'moderate' while holding fundraisers with Planned Parenthood leadership, calling for tax hikes, and working to get Hillary Clinton elected," the statement from Brasell said. "That's not a moderate in my book."
