Zach Raknerud Wins Dem-NPL Congressional Primary

BISMARCK, ND — Zach Raknerud secured the Democratic-NPL nomination for North Dakota’s congressional district tonight with a resounding victory. Raknerud was endorsed as the Democratic-NPL candidate for Congress at the virtual state convention in March. 

Democratic-NPL Chairwoman Kylie Oversen said:

“As a working class, lifelong North Dakotan, Zach knows the struggles working families face every day with access to healthcare and opportunity. He will be a present, active, and vocal representative who stands up for justice and accountability. He will go to Washington with your interests and your goals in mind in contrast to our current representative who has been all-but silent during the national crisis and unrest.” 

The election results also confirm the nomination of the Dem-NPL’s other six statewide candidates and 55 legislative candidates who will be on the ballot on November 3.

Oversen continued:

“Our candidates are incredibly excited and have been preparing for the run-up to November for months. During the covid-19 crisis, they have found new and creative ways to connect with voters who are ready for representatives dedicated to an economy and state government that work for all North Dakotans.”
