Bette Grande To Announce US House Campaign Tomorrow

Well, to be specific, Grande has sent out a press release indicating an “important announcement” to take place in her home town of Williston tomorrow, and it’s pretty clear she’s running for the House.

Which is news we broke here on SAB last week.

WILLISTON, ND – State Rep. Bette Grande, a Fargo-area legislator, will be making an “important announcement” tomorrow in her home town of Williston, ND.

The announcement will take place at 10:00am at the Badlands Steel Company.

Grande’s choice of venue for the announcement is interesting. I don’t know anything about the Badlands Steel Company, but Williston is the heart of North Dakota’s oil boom. It’s also in western North Dakota, which trends much more conservative than eastern North Dakokta.

Grande is a very conservative Republican, and is clearly looking to appeal to western conservatives from the western part of the state which is, frankly, driving North Dakota’s economic success.
