    North Dakota state legislative candidate who died of COVID-19 wins election

    A North Dakota state legislative candidate who died of coronavirus last month won his Tuesday election.
    Republican David Andahl, who was 55 when he died, and another GOP candidate, Dave Nehring, were elected to represent the 8th district in the state’s House of Representatives.

    The district has two representatives and both Andahl and Nehring bested their two Democratic challengers.
    Andahl died after being hospitalized with the illness for about four days, his mother, Pat Andahl, had told The Bismarck Times.

    Who is Gerry Mandering?

    Is he an associate of Paul Harris?

    The way I see it is District 8 doesn't want themselves represented in the State House.

    I think you conflated "gerrymandering" with "stupidity"

    Why did you put "intense gerrymandering" in the title? Neither the article title, article summary, or actual article mention anything of the sort.

    What probably happened is that lots of people sent in their ballots before he died. That's not exactly an unheard-of happening this year.

    Yeah I'm rabid about stomping out gerrymandering, so I came into this thread ready to be heated. Not seeing it sadly.

    Our state AG said last month that the Republicans will be able to fulfil it via appointment.

    Seems sketchy, but if that's the rule you have to go by it.

    I haven't looked into it so I really don't know, I'm just going by what the AG said.

    Republicans voted in a Qanon CT full-fledged member and a dead person. Sounds about right for the party that dismisses any sort of logical thinking.

    That isn't gerrymandering. It's the people voting for the person on the ballot and now the governor will name a replacement for him.

    Same thing happened with a democrat in another state several years ago and they named the dead guys wife to take his seat.

    Slippery slope. First ghosts then interdimensional vampires. Alex Jones has been warning us.

    I hear that on Andahl's COVID-19 death bed he was asked, "If you had it to do over again, Dave, would you have supported a mask mandate?"

    He replied, in a barely audible whisper, "No. Give me liberty or give me..."

    Beeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep
