U.S. House Candidate: “You can't be a bull in a china shop” to make change in D.C.

(WDAY Radio) — A candidate for the U.S. House seat in North Dakota says she will aim to work with her fellow party members, build coalitions, and address key issues when in Washington, and will not look to make waves on social media.

Julie Fedorchak made an apparent jab at her opponent, Dr. Rick Becker, in an interview with The Flag’s What’s on Your Mind. She pushed against the style of politics highlighted by Majorie Taylor Greene (R-GA, 14th District), which Fedorchak believes is causing more distractions by causing infighting within the Republican party.

“You can’t be a bull in a china shop and just irritate people and alienate people. You have to be able to work together, respect others, and sit down [to] talk about the issues and how you can find common ground and build the kind of alliances and coalitions you need to get things done on a serious issue facing our country. 

Becker has received endorsements from several members of the Freedom Caucus, a wing of the Republican Party once led by Majorie Taylor Greene. Those endorsements include Rep. Matt Gaetz (R-FL, 1st District) and Lauren Boebert (R-CO, 3rd District). The caucus has been frequently criticized by other Republicans over the ousting of House Speaker Kevin McCarthy in 2023, it’s stance on Ukraine Aid, and more.

Fedorchak has stated multiple times she would be work together with conservatives, and even some Democrats, in the U.S. House.
