In less than 3 hours, air force one touched down and took off in Fargo.
It was no coincidence President Donald Trump was paying the state a visit. The event was a fundraiser for Congressman Kevin Cramer’s Senate Campaign.
The last campaign fundraising report shows Cramer’s opponent, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp coming in with much higher dollar amount.
Congressman Cramer: “We run a much leaner machine, a much more efficient campaign. I don’t think I’ll raise as much cash on hand as she has, but at the end of the day, it’s the vote that counts.”
His supporters agree, even though the ticket costs were high.
Todd Petersen; Minnesota Resident: “For the general public.. who could afford that? But if you’ve got the money, go for it!”
Cramer: “You know, $1,000 a couple to see a president isn’t really that high a price in today’s political economy.”
Democratic House Candidate Mac Schneider disagreed with those high ticket prices.
About 300 volunteers signed up to make phone calls today at the Dem-NPL headquarters.
Schneider: “Come down and get a hot dog. It’s not going to cost you
$1000, it’s not going to cost you anything.”
As election day is now officially less than two months away, Cramer’s supporters say they have not doubt he’ll have the state’s support.
Cramer told our KX News reporters that we shouldn’t be surprised if the president pays North Dakota, yet, another visit, but couldn’t confirm anything so soon.
