MINOT, N.D. — When former U.S. Senate candidate Rick Becker took his now-ended campaign to Tioga in early March, he spent his time whipping a crowd into a frenzy with promises of mass arrests and pursuit of disgraced former President Donald Trump’s conspiracy theories about the election.
It was a sound strategy for Becker.
District 2, which encompasses the Tioga area, sent a whopping 92 delegates to the NDGOP’s state convention, one of the largest groups of delegates in the state. They stalked around the convention in shirts emblazoned with the slogan “Sons of Liberty.” They voted almost unanimously for Becker and his initiatives at the convention.
But let’s go back to when Becker visited Tioga. In that fired-up and angry crowd was a man who told Becker that mass arrests in Washington weren’t enough.
He called for executions.
