(BISMARCK, ND) – Kevin Cramer is once again putting his own financial and political interests ahead of the North Dakotans he’s supposed to represent. Rather than face farmers and producers at the Red River Farm Network’s ag issues forum at Big Iron tomorrow, Cramer will be hobnobbing with high-dollar donors in Texas at another closed-door fundraiser.
From Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL: “Not only is Kevin Cramer too cowardly to face farmers and manufacturers attending Big Iron after he repeatedly kowtowed to the administration on the trade war, but he’s using the opportunity to seek financial gain. Unfortunately, that’s typical behavior for Cramer – North Dakotans have come to expect nothing more from the same politician who puts his finances above all else.”
This isn’t the first time Cramer has been too scared to participate in debates centered on ag issues. In August, Cramer declined the Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce and ND Soybean Growers Association forum that focused on the trade war and the Farm Bill. Senator Heitkamp participated.
