Conservative farmer Tom Campbell announced today that he is withdrawing from the Republican primary for North Dakota’s U.S. House seat and will endorse Kelly Armstrong.

In a state, Campbell said, “In this political environment, it’s critical for Republicans to be united and focused on victory in November. Across the country, Democrats are energized and determined to win back the House and derail Republican’s conservative change agenda. “That’s why I’m endorsing Kelly Armstrong in his campaign for Congress. We need to make sure Republicans keep North Dakota’s congressional seat, and I’m confident Kelly will fight for conservative values in Washington. He has my full support.”

Armstrong defeated fellow state Sen. Tom Campbell of Grafton on the first ballot at the Republican state convention, earning the support of 847 delegates to Campbell’s 480. 

Democrats endorsed Mac Schneider, a former state Senate minority leader, less than a month ago. He is the only Democrat running in the primary.

Tiffany Abentroth and Paul Schaffner also filed for the June 12th primary.
