Zach Raknerud is the endorsed candidate of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL for the U.S. House of Representatives.

He also acknowledges that he's the underdog, by a country mile, in his race against Republican incumbent Kelly Armstrong.

Still, he credits his recent criticism of what he perceived as Armstrong's silence in the aftermath of George Floyd's death in Minneapolis with getting the incumbent to engage.

Raknerud also talks about how our nation can recover from the COVID-19 pandemic, how we can improve race relations and law enforcement and his plan to diminish the power of big business in politics.
