Something fishy with 4A GOP

In the midst of heated political news in North Dakota, across the river in Minnesota, something smells fishy. The 4A Republicans have not endorsed a candidate to face the endorsed DFL candidate, Ben Lein.

While three Republican candidates have filed to run – Benjamin Larson, Travis Reimke and Ken Lucier – the Clay County GOP has yet to announce an endorsing convention. A convention was held last month to endorse uncontested candidates running for 4B House and SD4 Senate, but when an endorsement is actually needed, the executive committee does nothing. I wonder what the establishment is up to, anyway.

Could it be they don’t think their candidate can win the endorsement?
