From Rep. Madison Cawthorn's coke orgy fabulisms to the chaos in the NDGOP around Rick Becker's Senate campaign, we are seeing what happens when we reward spectacle over competence.
"This group has improperly used logos and images from the NDGOP’s official website on its website and press releases to mislead delegates into believing it is associated with the NDGOP," NDGOP Chairman Perrie Schafer wrote to delegates. "I want to make clear to you that these communications are not from the NDGOP and do not represent the NDGOP State Committee’s position on the applicable rules for this weekend’s Convention, and the NDGOP has not consented to or authorized this rogue group’s use of the NDGOP’s logos and images."
