As current and former chairs of the Republican Party, we know the special responsibility that comes with selecting the nominees of our Party.
The Republican Party is dominant in North Dakota because our Party reflects the conservative values shared by most of our citizens. Our electoral success obliges a higher degree of responsibility when selecting candidates. An ideal candidate has proven conservative credentials, an awareness of governing, and enjoys widespread public support.
With this responsibility in mind, our Party endorsed Wayne Stenehjem for Governor and Nicole Poolman for Lieutenant Governor.
Wayne Stenehjem is a tested leader who has effectively served the citizens of our state. As Attorney General, Stenehjem has fought against Obamacare and federal government overreach at every turn. He has an encyclopedic knowledge of North Dakota and its people. Wayne’s relationships with other leaders inside and outside of government will produce a broad coalition of support that will be ready to govern on day one.
Nicole Poolman is a mother, teacher and a dynamic leader in our legislature. She has been an advocate for children and families and a guardian of sound fiscal policies. Nicole represents the positive, conservative future of our State.
The Stenehjem-Poolman ticket offers a record of conservative values and integrity that has won endorsements from across the political spectrum. That’s why an overwhelming majority of our state’s elected officials have voiced unequivocal support for Wayne Stenehjem and Nicole Poolman, and why so many from outside our party support their election.
As Governor, Wayne Stenehjem is the substantive candidate that offers an optimistic vision for our future. He will strengthen the foundations of our state’s economy to cultivate even more opportunities for the next generation of North Dakotans.
We urge those inside and outside our Party to support Wayne Stenehjem for Governor and Nicole Poolman for Lieutenant Governor in the Republican Primary Election on June 14.
