It’s official. Steve Hildebrand, who recruited Matt Varilek to run for Congress has abandonded Varilek and decided he cannot support him because of their differences on gay marriage.
?I spoke with Matt at length after his editorial board interview yesterday and told him that I was angry with his position and that I could not help him anymore,? Hildebrand said Wednesday…Varilek termed it a ?private conversation? and declined to disclose what was said….Hildebrand was an early backer of Varilek and helped launch a Facebook page in 2011 that urged him to run for Congress. But his support for Varilek is over, he said Wednesday.
How could Varilek be so insensitive? What a shame… What is worse for Varilek is it’s becoming clear that the only people who realize there is a Democratic congressional primary going on in SD are the people he’s ticking off.
