(BISMARCK, ND) – Responding to the deadly white supremacist rally that occurred in Charlottesville, VA, over the weekend, Democratic-NPL Chairwoman Kylie Oversen issued the following statement:

“This weekend, we witnessed horrific acts of hate, violence and terror perpetrated by white supremacists, white nationalists and neo-Nazis. This was terrorism, plain and simple, and it claimed American lives. There should be no hesitation to condemn it, and no equivocation about who carried out these acts of terror.

“Two days have gone by, and North Dakotans have yet to hear from Congressman Kevin Cramer or Senator John Hoeven. We have heard forceful words of condemnation from other leaders across the country – both Republicans and Democrats – and it’s time for all North Dakota leaders to speak out, too.”
