Cramer Officially Joins North Dakota House Race

North Dakota Public Service Commission Chairman Kevin Cramer (R) made it official Thursday: he is running for the state’s At Large seat in Congress.

“The greatest threats to North Dakota are policies coming out of Washington, DC. I see it every day, and feel a sense of responsibility to do something about it,” Cramer said in a speech in Fargo, according to prepared remarks.

And he previewed some his lines of attack against nine-term Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.), whom Cramer challenged twice, unsucessfully, in the 1990s.

“The Pelosi-Pomeroy budget passed last year doubles the national debt within five years,” tieing the congressman to liberal House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.).
