Cramer (R-Special Interests) Only Ran for Senate Because Out-of-State Billionaire Promised to Help
BISMARCK, North Dakota, Sept. 5 -- The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party issued the following news release: Kevin Cramer's high-dollar, closed-door fundraiser shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone who's been following his campaign or political career. Cramer prioritizes financial gain and political capital ahead of the North Dakotans he's supposed to serve. That's why - by his own admission - he only ran for U.S. Senate when an out-of-state billionaire promised to help him fundraise. So of cou  more

Cramer Acknowledges Anxiety From Trade War, But Doesn't Offer Solutions
BISMARCK, North Dakota, Sept. 5 -- The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party issued the following news release: It's been over four days and twelve hours since Kevin Cramer missed his self-imposed deadline to stand with North Dakota against the trade war. Reminder: Cramer gave a deadline of September for when he'd become "concerned" enough to stand against the trade war and break his pledge of supporting the president 100 percent of the time, even when it's bad for North Dakota. Cramer has even ad  more

Cramer Missed Important Vote During Last High-Dollar, Closed-Door Fundraiser
BISMARCK, North Dakota, Sept. 5 -- The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party issued the following news release: Once again, Kevin Cramer is putting his financial interest and political capital ahead of working for North Dakotans.

Cramer-Endorsed Trade War Threatens ND Economy
BISMARCK, North Dakota, Sept. 4 -- The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party issued the following news release: It's clear Kevin Cramer doesn't want to campaign or debate his agenda in public - that's why he's turned down multiple debates and why he's holding yet another closed-door fundraiser where the cheapest price of admission is $1,000. What could he possibly be afraid of? Perhaps it's his health care agenda that threatens coverage for many folks in North Dakota, including individuals with a   more

More Tariffs Announced on Way to Cramer Fundraiser
BISMARCK, North Dakota, Sept. 7 -- The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party issued the following news release: En route to Fargo for a closed-door, ritzy fundraiser for administration lapdog Kevin Cramer, the president announced that his administration threatened tariffs on an additional $267 billion of Chinese goods - this is on top of the tariffs on $200 billion on Chinese goods the administration is preparing to enact in the coming days.

Remember When The GOP Didn't Want Cramer to Run?
BISMARCK, North Dakota, Sept. 6 -- The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party issued the following news release: When Republicans first considered Congressman Kevin Cramer's candidacy, they cringed and worked to keep him out of the race. Why didn't they want him to run? Maybe it was Cramer's penchant for saying outrageously offensive things. Or maybe it was his sycophantic need to stand with the president 100 percent of the time, even when it's bad for North Dakota. "Top Republicans in Washington a  more

Shot/Chaser: Cramer Misleads on Campaign Pledge to Stand With President 100 Percent
BISMARCK, North Dakota, Sept. 4 -- The North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party issued the following news release: Kevin Cramer's one campaign pledge is that he'll support the president 100 percent of the time. But now that the president's trade war is wreaking havoc on North Dakota's economy, he's trying to paper over his record of support, claiming he's never been with the president 100 percent of the time and, in fact, that he doesn't keep score of how often he voted with presidents. That's false.   more
