North Dakota: GOP state legislature candidate who died of Covid wins election

Nearly a month after he died of complications from Covid-19, a Republican in North Dakota has won a seat in the state legislature. David Andahl was 55 when he died on Oct. 5, after winning a heated primary with an incumbent committee chairman.

Sen. Kevin Cramer (R-N.D.) had endorsed the Bismarck rancher, saying, “we need more Trump Republicans in the State Legislature.”

Democrats nationwide had gone into Election Day believing that the White House’s haphazard handling of the coronavirus pandemic would hurt Republican chances at the ballot boxes, only to be stunned when the projected “blue wave” never materialized.

For the uninitiated, North Dakota has seen a dramatic surge in cases over the last month — it now leads the country in the number of new cases per 100,000 people, according to the COVID Tracking Project.

Andahl and another Republican won the two seats for state representatives from North Dakota’s eighth district, with Andahl taking nearly 36 per cent of the vote.
