Senator Sorvaag Addresses NDSU

College Republicans

Senator Ron Sorvaag of District 45 addressed NDSU College Republicans this past Thursday to discuss the importance of standing for what you believe in and how the legislature can connect with young minds.

In The News

Congressional Candidate Kelly Armstrong Speaks to Republicans in Fargo

“Really after Labor Day is when people who don’t necessarily eat, breathe, and sleep this stuff start becoming engaged, and now we need to get our message out to as many voters as possible because we think when they hear what we have to say, we’ll get tremendous amount of support,” said Armstrong. Armstrong is going up against former State Senate Minority Leader and Democratic nominee Mac Schneider for North Dakota’s lone seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.
