Rep. Rick Berg received North Dakota Republicans' fervent and unanimous endorsement Saturday for this year's U.S. Senate race.
In accepting his party's support, Berg heralded the dangers of Washington's overreach in power and why North Dakota -- with its strong economy and job growth -- should be an example for the nation.
"We're going to bring North Dakota common sense to Washington," Berg said.
"We're going to share with them our values, not live with their mistakes.
"We're listening to Washington tell us what to do, rather than telling them what we can do," Berg added to one of many roars of applause that broke out during his address. "If we don't do something, our kids are going to live in an America that's lost its way."
