As most of you already know, back on May 19th, I endorsed Doug Burgum and Brent Sanford for Governor and Lt. Governor. This is the right team, with the right experience, to lead our state through the significant fiscal challenges we face.
Last week, Gov. Ed Schafer joined me in endorsing Burgum and Sanford, echoing my comments when Ed said he "believes in Doug's character, and his abilities" and that Doug is "just what we need" to lead North Dakota.
Until now, I have focused on the strengths of Doug and Brent's candidacy. But streams of misinformation, false ads and untrue blog posts regarding Doug's campaign over the past 72 hours has made this impossible. So this letter is a response to that propaganda and means to set the record straight before the important decision voters will make on June 14th.
