Cramer Still Backed By Out-Of-State Dark Money

Despite Koch Snub, Cramer Still Propped Up By Out-Of-State Special Interests 
(BISMARCK, ND) – Kevin Cramer may have lost the backing of Club for Growth and the Koch Network because of his fiscal conservative ‘inconsistencies,’ but he’s still backed by out-of-state special interests, including the billionaire Uihleins from Illinois. Cramer took the maximum primary contribution from Uihlein and his wife, who have made a point of funding other radical candidates across the country – including accused child molester and former Alabama Senate candidate Roy Moore – in order to buy their influence in Washington.

Don’t forget: Cramer has a history of accepting money and help from radical groups that don’t share North Dakota’s values. Earlier this year, Cramer “sought and received the support of an anti-LGBT group that links homosexuality to pedophilia and defends conversion therapy,” and Cramer still hasn’t returned a campaign contribution from a PAC that is “facing scrutiny from campaign finance regulators” that was formed to support Roy Moore.

And, perhaps most importantly, earlier this year Cramer admitted that he got into the Senate race, not at the urging of North Dakotans, but only after an out-of-state billionaire pledged to bankroll his campaign.

From Courtney Rice, Press Secretary for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL: “Kevin Cramer’s eagerness to accept dark money from out-of-state groups makes us wonder who he actually works for in DC: North Dakotans or the special interests bankrolling his campaign?”
