North Dakota Democrats vote to continue supporting pro-life U.S. House candidate
MINOT, N.D. — A pro-life Democrat running for North Dakota’s at-large U.S. House seat will still enjoy the support of his party despite push back from some activists.
Yesterday I reported that a district chairman for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL would be introducing a resolution calling on the party to pull support from U.S. House candidate Mark Haugen .
I can report that last night the resolution failed after an angry, and at times profane, speech from the party’s District 7 chairman Patrick Englehart.
I had attempted to speak to Englehart about his resolution yesterday, but he told me he won’t speak to me because he’s “not a big fan” of my work.
According to my sources who attended the meeting, which was held virtually, Englehart addressed the party’s policy committee for approximately 10 to 15 minutes, accusing conservatives of treating women like “brood mares” and “chattel,” and accusing the Democratic-NPL of doing too much to compromise with conservatives.
