(BISMARCK, ND) – Kevin Cramer’s economy-wrecking trade war is having lasting effects on North Dakota’s farmers, ranchers, and businesses – but Cramer has told them they “don’t have a very high pain threshold” and called their concerns “hysteria.” So it’s no wonder when a constituent asked Cramer what the “line” would be for him to finally stand up for North Dakota in this trade warCramer punted his responsibility down the road, simply giving a deadline of “September.”

Well, it’s one month to the day until we reach Cramer’s self-imposed deadline and we’re launching a countdown clock to remind him every minute of every second of every day that he’s not standing up for North Dakotans.

“Congressman Cramer’s decision to abdicate his responsibility in stopping the trade war is a clear sign that he’s more interested in kowtowing to an extreme D.C. agenda than he is in standing up for our interests,” said Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “That’s why the Dem-NPL is here to remind him – every day from now until Election Day – that he’s shirking his responsibility to North Dakotans, and they’ll remember that in November.”
