Plain Talk: Sen. Cramer says he doesn’t support censures for Reps. Cheney or Kinzinger


MINOT, N.D. — Sen. Kevin Cramer, one of former President Donald Trump’s earliest and most consistent supporters, does not support the RNC’s censure of Rep. Liz Cheney and Rep. Adam Kinzinger.

Trump supporters in the RNC are pushing the censure because Cheney and Kinzinger have been critical of Trump and have participated in the congressional inquiry into the Jan. 6, 2021, riot.

“We don’t have the luxury of kicking people out of our party,” Cramer said of the resolution.

That doesn’t mean he’s supportive of the position Cheney and Kinzinger have taken on Trump and the Jan. 6 inquiry. On this episode of Plain Talk, he said he likely agrees with much of what the resolution says, but he doesn’t believe the RNC ought to be focusing on this issue.

“I think it’s unnecessary and unproductive,” he said.

Cramer also discussed how we’re facing our entanglements with China, from the Winter Olympics to the debate over the Fufeng corn milling facility to be built near Grand Forks, as well as the situation in Ukraine, and our evolving debate about energy.
