CPAC Releases North Dakota Legislative Scorecard, Revealing a Wide Range of Conservatism Among Republicans.

ALEXANDRIA, VA (January 18, 2024) — CPAC Foundation’s analysis reveals significant differences in the voting patterns of Republicans in the North Dakotan legislature. In the House, though 11 Republican legislators will receive CPAC’s Award for Conservative Excellence, 16 members scored below 60%. Similarly, though two Republican Senators will receive Awards for Conservative Excellence, four scored below 60%.


“Despite the strong presence of liberal Republicans in the House and the Senate, the majority of Republicans in North Dakota’s legislature ensured that conservatism had its day this session,” said CPAC Chairman Matt Schlapp. “These legislators passed strong pro-life bills, cracked down on critical race theory in schools, and defended minors from radical irreversible gender procedures.”

CPAC recognizes several North Dakota legislators for their conservative voting records. The following members of the North Dakota State Legislature earned CPAC’s Award for Conservative Excellence for voting with the conservative position at least 90% of the time during the 2023 session.


Doug Larsen (91%)

Scott Meyer (91%)


Larry Bellew (100%)

Nathan Toman (100%)

Brandon Prichard (96%)

Kelby Timmons (96%)

Matthew Ruby (95%)

Jim Kasper (92%)

Ben Koppelman (92%)

Nico Rios (92%)

Lori VanWinkle (92%)

Andrew Marschall (91%)

Jeff Hoverson (90%)

Additionally, many lawmakers in the North Dakota State Legislature earned CPAC’s Award for Conservative Achievement for voting with the conservative position at least 80% of the time during the 2023 session.

The bills featured in CPAC’s 2023 Ratings of North Dakota address matters of national security, school choice, and protecting children from radical gender ideology. These issues, coupled with our mission to protect life, liberty, property and uphold the American family, created the basis by which the CPAC Foundation rated the North Dakota legislature.

The Center for Legislative Accountability (CLA), an initiative of the CPAC Foundation, is the premier organization for holding lawmakers accountable. The CLA produces the longest-running conservative congressional scorecard and our state program is the only one in the nation that scores all 8,000 lawmakers in the 50 states across every policy area.
