DNC Statement on Doug Burgum’s 2024 announcement

Democratic National Committee Chair Jaime Harrison released the following statement in response to Doug Burgum’s entrance into the 2024 Republican primary:

“With Doug Burgum’s announcement today, the race for the MAGA base gained yet another candidate who has cozied up to Donald Trump for years and implemented his MAGA agenda. After campaigning for Trump, Burgum signed one of the strictest abortion bans in the country with no exceptions for rape or incest after six weeks, pushed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, and signed legislation making it easier for criminals to carry guns. This field might be getting more crowded, but every single contender is peddling the same brand of extremism that the American people have rejected again and again.”
