MINOT, N.D. — In terms of appealing to the MAGAverse, state Rep. Rick Becker did everything right.
He pandered to 2020 election conspiracies. He called for mass arrests of the supposed “deep state” while his Trumpy supporters called for executions. He courted the Qanon crowd long and hard.
But, proving once again that loyalty to Trumpism earns you nothing, the disgraced former president didn’t endorse Becker’s insurgent primary campaign against Republican Senate incumbent John Hoeven.
Trump endorsed Hoeven.
