by | Jan 23, 2024 | News

In a significant development in North Dakota politics, former State Representative Dr. Rick Becker has officially announced his candidacy for the state’s sole congressional seat, challenging incumbent Rep. Kelly Armstrong (R-ND).

Dr. Becker, a respected plastic surgeon and businessman, is known for his conservative stance during his tenure in the state legislature from 2012 to 2018.

According to a press release from his campaign, Dr. Becker has positioned himself as a champion of conservative values, aiming to address issues he believes are being neglected by the current political leadership in Washington, D.C. His campaign is set against the backdrop of what he perceives as the Biden administration’s policies adversely affecting the middle class, particularly through inflation and border security issues.

Becker’s platform includes a strong emphasis on ending what he terms Washington’s “reckless spending spree” and opposing “radical WOKE ideology.” His campaign message resonates with a call to prioritize American interests and values, echoing the “America first” agenda.

As reported by Breitbart News, Dr. Becker’s decision to run is partly fueled by his dissatisfaction with incumbent Rep. Kelly Armstrong’s stance on key issues, including Armstrong’s vote against the censure and fining of Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) over his role in the 2016 Russia investigation. This decision, along with broader concerns about the direction of federal policies, has prompted Becker to step into the political arena, advocating for a change in leadership.

Dr. Becker’s campaign promises to bring a fresh perspective and renewed focus on conservative principles to the U.S. House of Representatives. His entry into the race adds a dynamic element to the North Dakota GOP primary, scheduled for June 11, and signals a potential shift in the political landscape of the state.

This campaign marks a critical moment for North Dakota’s political future, as voters will decide between continuing with the incumbent representative or opting for a change in leadership that aligns with Dr. Becker’s vision for the state and the country.
