ND GOP chairman: Call Pomeroy on health careGRAND FORKS, N.D. (AP) - North Dakota's Republican state party chairman wants GOP activists to call Democratic Rep. Earl Pomeroy to tell him to vote against health care overhaul legislation.
Gary Emineth read Pomeroy's personal cell phone number and the number of his Washington office from the stage of the North Dakota Republican convention in Grand Forks on Saturday.
Pomeroy spokesman Brenden Timpe confirmed that the number Emineth read was Pomeroy's personal cell phone. Timpe says Pomeroy uses the cell phone to keep in touch with his family and friends. He says business calls usually go to Pomeroy's office.
Timpe says Pomeroy has taken steps to change the cell phone number. The spokesman says Emineth's action was ``not an ideal situation.'
