Letter: Sen. Hoeven ducks the tough questionNorth Dakota Sen. John Hoeven stated he wants to “work with everybody and get the job done” as co-chairman of the Republican Party Platform Committee when he was appointed in June. According to The Forum, Hoeven could not be reached for comment after the platform committee decided there would be no exceptions for rape in their anti-abortion stance.
Sen. Hoeven’s job is to do what is best for North Dakota as he consistently says his opponents have failed to do. So, is this really in the best interest of women in North Dakota, or is it just “helping to get the job done” by finalizing the party platform?
