Another week and another Primary Election in the books!
Last week South Dakotans hit the polls and yesterday it was North Dakota’s turn. As I type up this update Tuesday evening, the polls have closed in ND, but most precincts are still busy counting votes. I am on the road this week meeting with credit unions in both North and South Dakota to discuss the importance of political fundraising as well as to review a few of our 2023 state advocacy priorities.
Similar to South Dakota, many winners of yesterday’s primary races have punched their legislative ticket, due to the fact they will not face a challenger in November’s General Election. I highly recommend you all take 5-10 minutes this morning to review the results of yesterday’s Primary Elections.
You can quickly find all the results here.
