Commentary: Mystery Republican candidate files for North Dakota House race
According to a Statement of Candidacy filed with the FEC (see below), a woman named Tiffany Abentroth is running for the U.S. House in North Dakota, a race that would pit her against three-term incumbent Republican Kevin Cramer for the NDGOP nomination.
Former state lawmaker Ben Hanson is currently the only announced U.S. House candidate for North Dakota Democrats.
But who is Abentroth? Nobody I’ve spoken to in North Dakota political circles has heard of her before. I’ve been writing about politics in North Dakota for going on 15 years now and I’ve never heard of her either.
