NDGOP Calls on North Dakota Dem-NPL Leaders to Reject Biden’s Cancellation of the Keystone XL Pipeline
BISMARCK—Today, Rick Berg, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”) made the following statement in response to President Joe Biden’s decision to revoke the permit for the Keystone XL pipeline:
“Just hours after calling for unity – and with the stroke of a pen – Joe Biden killed 11,000 jobs and $1.6 billion in wages by cancelling the Keystone XL Pipeline. This particularly strikes at the heart of North Dakota’s economy as a leader in America’s energy independence. I call on North Dakota Democrats, including Chairwoman Oversen, Leader Boschee, and Leader Heckaman to demand that the President reverse this decision that will leave thousands of North Dakota families out of work.”
BISMARCK—Today, Rick Berg, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”) made the following statement in response to the financial support senior members of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL (“ND Dem-NPL”)’s executive committee – including from, most notably, Chairwoman Kylie Overson – have provided to a violent, left wing extremist. Thomas Alexander Starks was arrested after wielding an axe at the office of Senator John Hoeven in Fargo, drawing financial support—instead of clear condemnation—from top ND Dem-NPL officials.
“It is inexcusable that Chairwoman Overson would be personally involved in supporting a far-left extremist whose violent actions constitute an assault on our democracy. Video evidence leaves little in doubt about this attack, so it is unfathomable why ND Dem-NPL officials would lend their name and financial support to a man they refer to as ‘innocent.’ I want to thank our brave men and women of the Fargo Police Department for their diligent pursuit of justice in this matter, as well as Senator Hoeven for being an excellent public servant for all North Dakotans. We will not be intimidated by violence and extremism – even when it is explicitly and sadly endorsed by our opposition.”
BISMARCK—Today, Rick Berg, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”) made the following statement in response to North Dakota Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem’s decision to join the Texas v. Pennsylvania lawsuit as an amicus curiae:
“I wholeheartedly support the decision to have North Dakota join 16 other states in the fight against voting irregularities in the 2020 Presidential Election. North Dakotans overwhelmingly chose another four years of President Trump’s leadership, but, unfortunately, our votes are diminished by the irregularities that occurred in other states. In North Dakota, we believe in fairness and playing by the rules and for the good of the Republic, we expect other states to do the same. This lawsuit is our opportunity to hold bad actors in the system accountable.”
