MINOT, N.D. — “I’ve been recruiting candidates for office for well over 20 years,” my friend Jamie Selzler, a former executive director for the North Dakota Democratic-NPL and once upon a time my colleague in the Minot paperboy racket, wrote in a recent letter to the editor .
He says his party is facing strong headwinds in finding candidates in our state than ever before.
“This is the hardest I’ve ever seen it trying to help someone agree to run for office. And second place isn’t even close,” he wrote.
Boy, he wasn’t kidding.
