NHDP Statement on Doug Burgum’s Visit to New Hampshire

CONCORD, NH — As Doug Burgum makes his first visit to New Hampshire as a presidential candidate this weekend, NHDP Chair Ray Buckley released the following statement:


“After signing one of the strictest abortion bans in the country, legislation that makes it easier for criminals to carry guns, and several dangerous anti-trans bills, Doug Burgum is now running for president to take his MAGA agenda nationwide. Make no mistake: he’s just another Trump-supporting, anti-choice, 2024 candidate flocking to New Hampshire to rip away Granite Staters’ freedoms — just like he did in North Dakota” Here’s a snapshot of Doug Burgum’s MAGA record as North Dakota governor:

  • For years, Burgum has closely aligned himself with Donald Trump and enacted his MAGA agenda. He endorsed Trump twice — saying North Dakotans were “proud to stand with” Trump — and traveled to campaign for him in 2020.

  • Burgum signed into law one of the strictest abortion bans in the country, which had no exceptions for victims of rape or incest after six weeks.

  • He pushed to repeal the Affordable Care Act, which is the lifeline for thousands in his state and millions across the country.

  • He has an ‘A’ rating from the NRA and signed legislation that makes it easier for criminals to carry guns.

  • Burgum also signed legislation endangering trans kids, furthering extreme right-wing culture wars at the expense of North Dakotans.
