President declines offer to visit North Dakota

Washington D.C. – Today President Obama declined Congressman Kevin Cramer’s offer for the President to visit North Dakota, only four days after his office received the invitation. An explanation was not provided other than expressing his appreciation, and a promise to keep Cramer’s request on file.

“Although I understand the pressures upon the President’s schedule, I am perplexed with the hurried nature of his response. I continue to believe the President would stand to gain a number of insights on what’s happening in North Dakota, which he can take back to the White House and help our nation. I hope the President’s implied proposal for further consideration is genuine and North Dakotans don’t feel offended, ” stated Cramer.
