Rick Berg on Principles & Values

 


Declined to debate GOP opponent at two Tea Party debates

Rick Berg won the GOP endorsement for Senate on March 31. Just days before the convention, his opponent, Duane Sand, announced he was going straight to the primary. Sand said he's disappointed that Berg bypassed two tea party-sponsored debates earlier this year. "If you won't debate me, how are you going to debate and defeat Heidi Heitkamp?" Sand asked. Berg's campaign cited scheduling conflicts as the reason for not taking part in the debates, held Jan. 20 in Bismarck and Feb. 13 in Fargo.

To get country back on track, change the Senate

Berg said federal regulations on industry need to be stripped away and a more business-friendly climate is needed. He said his Republican House colleagues have tried to do so, but have been stymied by inaction by Senate Democrats.

"The Senate's not passing a budget, the Senate hasn't taken up bills passed by the House. To get the country back on track, we've got to change the Senate," Berg said.
