(BISMARCK, ND) – North Dakota Democratic-NPL Executive Director Robert Haider released the following statement on NDGOP candidates’ continued support for Donald Trump following the release of Trump’s abhorrent comments about women recorded in 2005:

“Donald Trump was recorded on camera bragging about actions that amount to sexually assaulting women, then called it ‘just locker room talk.’ How in the world do John Hoeven, Kevin Cramer, Doug Burgum, and North Dakota’s Republican candidates the rest of the way down the ticket continue to ignore this man’s vile comments as he seeks the most important job in the world? If his perceived entitlement to women’s bodies doesn’t stop Republican officials from supporting him, will anything?”
