Letter: ND newspapers endorse CramerI was happy to read all of the newspaper endorsements for Kevin Cramer. As someone who has known Cramer well for many years, I am in full agreement. Cramer is a hardworking person, a consistent conservative voice and a man of his word. We can trust him.
When voters complain about gridlock in U.S. Congress, they should consider how Cramer has conducted himself in this race. In the volley of vicious and untrue accusations launched against him by his opponents, Cramer has remained calm and stated his case. He has not resorted to negative TV ads or bad-mouthed his opponent on radio. I can think of no one more qualified to build coalitions and work on both sides of the aisle in Congress than Cramer, and he has proved it in his conduct this election.
Cramer lives out his Christian principles both in the public eye and behind the scenes. He is a real statesman, able to stand true to his beliefs yet remain respectful of others. We need Cramer and more people like him in Congress.
