Which Kelly Armstrong Are We Going to See Tonight?

The ND GOP candidate continues to say one thing, do another on trade war, health care

(BISMARCK, ND) — When Kelly Armstrong takes the stage tonight for the first televised debate in the U.S. House of Representatives race, many viewers will be wondering: which Kelly Armstrong are they going to see tonight?

It’s become obvious throughout the campaign that Armstrong is willing to say whatever he has to to get elected, while turning his back on North Dakotans when it helps him advance his political career. Just look at two of the most important issues facing North Dakotans this election season: the ongoing trade war and preserving access to health care.

  • Kelly claims to support farmers, but he has been a cheerleader for the dangerous trade war despite the devastating effects on the agriculture industry.

  • Kelly claims to be an advocate for health care, but supports plans that would strip 40,000 North Dakotans or affordable health care and remove protections for over 315,000 people with pre-existing conditions.

“Throughout this campaign, Kelly Armstrong has made it clear that he will say anything to advance his political career while siding with D.C. Republicans over North Dakotans,” said Scott McNeil, Executive Director of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL. “North Dakotans want an independent representative who will have their back in Congress, not another rubber stamp for policies that will hurt working families.”
