FARGO - Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., urged North Dakota Republicans Sunday to support Donald Trump as the presidential candidate with the best chance of winning in the November election.

Cramer noted that North Dakota Republicans did not hold caucuses or a primary, so voters were not able to participate directly in choosing the party’s presidential candidate. To get a sense of the preferences of North Dakota Republicans, Cramer hosted an online straw poll, where Trump emerged as the favorite, gaining 38 percent.
Echoing Ben Carson, who stumped for Trump in a speech to the convention Sunday, Cramer called on North Dakota Republicans to rally behind Trump to ensure a Democrat doesn’t get elected to the White House in 2016.
“The unity of our party is critical if we’re going to win this election in November,” he said.
Trump shares with Ronald Reagan the ability to appeal to a broad swath of voters, Cramer said. “I think that’s part of the winning formula.”
The North Dakota GOP delegates will elect 25 delegates to go to the National Republican Convention in Cleveland this summer to select the presidential nominee.
