Silence by Federal Delegation Threatens Democracy for Generations

BISMARCK, ND — North Dakota’s congressional delegation continues to ignore public requests about where they stand on the president’s refusal to concede, his baseless lawsuits, and whether they acknowledge the incoming Biden-Harris administration. The Washington Post surveyed every Republican member of Congress last week on three critical questions:

  • Who won the election?
  • Do you support or oppose Donald Trump’s continuing efforts to claim victory?
  • If Joe Biden wins a majority in the Electoral College, will you accept him as the legitimately elected president of the United States?

Sen. John Hoeven, Sen. Kevin Cramer, and Rep. Kelly Armstrong refused to respond. The president’s legal team is 1 and 48 in post-election litigation as of Monday afternoon while judges throw out their cases for entirely lacking evidence.

The Democratic-NPL Party Chairwoman Kylie Oversen said:

“It’d be easy to say their refusal to admit reality is a mockery of democratic and republican ideals on which the United States is founded. But it’s not a joke. Their actions will leave a lasting stain that our children will still be scrubbing. It’s hard to tell if they think it’s a political game, they’re afraid, or if they just don’t care. But it doesn’t help anybody to hide from the truth. Hoeven, Cramer, and Armstrong need to recognize President-elect Joe Biden, so we can move forward for North Dakota and as a nation.”
