From the editorial: "We've seen enough from Tim Walz to know that we don't trust his instincts. ... We have no doubt that Scott Jensen has learned from the mistakes of Minnesota's current governor and will not repeat them."
John Hoeven's pragmatic approach as North Dakota's senior has consistently delivered. He has been especially focused on the state's twin economic pillars, agriculture and energy.
Republican Schultz's campaign focus has been public safety, economic prosperity, the Constitution and consumer protection. He continually promises to address the state’s violent crime trend by expanding the Attorney General Office’s criminal division. He also has the endorsement of nearly two dozen county sheriffs and the Minnesota Police and Peace Officers Association.
