BISMARCK, ND — The Democratic-NPL Party condemns the actions of Roland Riemers, who is seeking the party nomination for Congress. It was reported that Riemers attended a rally calling on Gov. Burgum to rescind executive orders related to business closures and physical distancing to prevent the spread of covid-19. The rally ignored guidelines from medical professionals aimed at keeping North Dakotans healthy and safe.
Zach Raknerud earned the Dem-NPL endorsement by a vote of convention goers on March 21.
Dem-NPL Executive Director Michael Taylor said:
“Riemers words and actions are irresponsible and not representative of Dem-NPL values. We disavow his conduct and his campaign entirely.”
