Out-of-Touch Cramer’s High-Dollar Fundraiser Closed Its Doors to Average North Dakotans
(BISMARCK, ND) – You have to hear it to believe it. When asked about the high cost of tickets to attend Kevin Cramer’s fundraiser with the president – which went up to $50,000 – Cramer responded: “You know, $1,000 a couple to see a president isn’t really that high a price in today’s political economy.”
“$1,000 may not seem like a lot of money for a politician who only got into this race because an out-of-state billionaire told him to, who pays himself and his family with campaign funds, and whose previous campaign contributions raised questions as to the “appearance of impropriety,” said Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “But that’s not the reality for many of us. This is just another out-of-touch, tone deaf statement from Kevin Cramer.
A report from the Federal Reserve Board finds that “40 percent of Americans can’t cover a $400 emergency expense.”
