Cramer: Extremists to blame for farm bill defeat

Email

FARGO -- Rep. Kevin Cramer, R-N.D., expressed frustration over extremists in both parties who rejected the farm bill because it wasn't perfect in their view.

Speaking Monday to The Forum newspaper's editorial board, Cramer called Thursday's surprising House defeat of the farm bill the most frustrating experience in his first six months in office.

"I go back more discouraged than I've ever been, to be honest with you, and that's hard to say for an optimist like me."
