Regarding an attempt to convene a convention, pursuant to NDGOP rules, only the Chairman and Executive Committee can issue a call for convention and must do so 90 days in advance. Due to COVID-19, that was not practically possible within the time constraints necessary to conduct the normal business of a convention.
I hope this update finds you well and in good health. What a year 2020 has been so far! I don’t think any of us could have predicted that the biggest election of our lifetime would be occurring amid a global pandemic.
I have been so impressed with not just resiliency of North Dakotans during this tumultuous time, but also with the patience and enthusiasm of our Republican members. When our State Convention – a long-anticipated event – was cancelled, you and the rest of our delegates came together to continue the important work of our Party by mail. We then mobilized to get-out-the-vote despite the change with the all-mail primary. What a primary we had, Republicans turned out 3:1 compared to Democrats, It shows the confidence they have in Republican leadership continuing to govern North Dakota.
