When Will Gardner Decline the Secretary of State Nomination?

Last night Will Gardner won the Republican Secretary of State nomination with over 54,000 votes.

Podcast: “Why Would You Want the Republican Wannabe When You Can Have the Republican?”

“It had nothing to do with complaining about President Trump,” Congressman Kevin Cramer told me today of a recent visit with the Trump administration.

The NDGOP Cannot Stand Behind a Convicted Peeping Tom

UPDATE: Gardner has withdrawn from the race, though as I note below I don’t believe he can get his name off of the primary ballot at this time. The Grand Forks Herald has more, including comments from incumbent Jaeger. Earlier this year Mandan businessman Will Gardner won the Secretary of State race endorsement of the

Secretary of State candidate Josh Boschee joined me on the radio show today. Recently Senator Heidi Heitkamp claimed that North Dakota’s Legislature passed voter ID laws to “clearly target” college students and Native Americans, a claim she hadn’t made prior to her re-election year.
