Minnesota Governor Tim Walz has made an endorsement in the Republican Primary for President. He told a reporter in Iowa that he would likely vote for moderate Republican Governor of North Dakota, Doug Burgum
Governor Walz told a reporter from the left-wing New York Times that “I’m not a Republican, I’m not going to vote in the Republican primary, but if I did I’d vote for [Governor Doug Burgum].”
Walz is the most extreme Governor in Minnesota’s history. Pushing for abortion with no limits, transgender surgeries for minors, and the biggest state budget yet.
Doug Burgum, on the other hand, prides himself on his moderate status. His campaign chose to focus on the economy, energy, and national security as his main campaign issues. As Governor, he has been liberal at best in the culture war front. In April of 2021, he vetoed a bill that would require student-athletes to play on the team that matches their biological sex. He has made some more conservative policy positions as Governor this year, clearly in an effort to win over the GOP base.
Worse yet, Burgum is funded by billionaire vaccine-pusher, Bill Gates. The Grand Forks Herald reported that Gates gave $100,000 to his first gubernatorial campaign in 2016. In 2022, Gates went on to purchase $13.5 million worth of farmland in the state – rubber-stamped by the North Dakota Attorney General.
Gates has made a hobby out of buying farmland. In fact, he is the United State’s largest private farmland owner, with 242,000 acres across 18 states. There is a lot of speculation about what he intends to do with this land, and most of it is not positive.
The fact that Gates is allowed to build a farmland monopoly with no clear intention to actually farm should set off alarm bells to government leaders in states like North Dakota. Instead, Doug Burgum sat by and let it happen.
Doug Burgum has many issues that should automatically disqualify him as a Republican presidential candidate. In addition to his long-time support from Gates, he also has the endorsement of leftist Governor Tim Walz.
