BISMARCK – Today, Perrie Schafer, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party (“NDGOP”) praised North Dakota’s delegation in Washington for rejecting the “For the People Act.”
“I want to thank Senators Hoeven and Cramer, along with Congressman Armstrong, for standing up for North Dakotans in rejecting the so-called ‘For the People Act”—more aptly named the ‘For the Democrats Act.’ This radical bill would have allowed for a national takeover of our elections to secure permanent Democrat-led majorities,” said Schafer.
He continued: “We are no stranger to out-of-state groups trying to take over our election process. Just last year, the NDGOP quickly mobilized against liberal special interest groups and removed a dangerous initiative from the ballot similar to S.1 and H.R.1. We are pleased to see that yet another thinly-disguised effort to preserve the Democrats’ power has been defeated.”
