Rob Port: Do we only care about security costs when Republicans visit North Dakota?
President Trump has made multiple visits to Fargo this election cycle in support of U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer, and the reaction from incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s surrogates in the press was to get bent out of shape about the cost of security.
Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney even requested that Republicans reimburse law enforcement expenses.
Well yesterday former Vice President Joe Biden visited Fargo support Heitkamp’s campaign, and yet we’ve heard nary a peep from the left wing commentators in the state about security costs. That despite there being a not insignificant law enforcement presence at and around Heitkamp’s event.
