North Dakota Republican U.S. House candidate Kevin Cramer will begin a town hall tour Saturday.

Cramer, who now serves on the state's Public Service Commission, will hold an open forum in Valley City at 10 a.m. Saturday at Vicky's Viking Room, 253 Central Ave. N.

In a written statement, Cramer said the "involvement of concerned citizens" is needed to change Washington.

"The town hall meeting was foundational in building our young nation, and it remains just as important today," he wrote. "It is representative democracy at its most basic, grassroots level -- sharing ideas and concerns with one another and then going out to vote."

Cramer announced last week that he will skip the Republican endorsing convention in March and instead seek the party's nomination during the June 8 primary elections.

Other Republican candidates running for the open U.S. House seat are Shane Goettle, Bette Grande, DuWayne Hendrickson, Brian Kalk and Kim Koppelman.

Cramer will hold three meetings Saturday, Feb. 4, beginning with a 10 a.m. meeting at the Choice Financial Community Room, 38 W. Sixth St., in Grafton.

Other Feb. 4 events include a noon meeting at the St. Thomas fire hall on Main Street and a 2:30 p.m. meeting at Thompson's Café on Main Street in Cavalier.

Cramer plans to hold more meetings across the state over the next several months.
