Giuliani Campaign Press Release - Giuliani Announces North Dakota State Chairman

August 09, 2007

The Rudy Giuliani Presidential Committee today announced the endorsement of North Dakota Public Service Commissioner Kevin Cramer, who will serve as the campaign's North Dakota State Chairman. Cramer was also on hand to help open Rudy's North Dakota campaign headquarters in Fargo earlier today.

"Rudy's strong leadership and record as a problem solver resonates with North Dakotans," said Commissioner Cramer. "I am proud to join the growing team of supporters in our state and help promote Rudy's 12 Commitments to the American People."

"Commissioner Cramer's endorsement demonstrates our strong support in North Dakota," said Giuliani's National Political Director Mark Campbell. "He is a great addition to our efforts and will help us strengthen our team."

The announcement of Cramer as North Dakota State Chairman follows the recent endorsements of Bismarck Mayor John Warford and fellow State Public Service Commissioner Susan Wefald.
