So who voted against the Republican party platform and for Common Core? Democrats, of course, surely trying to foist a liberal agenda of top-down centralized control of education and the melting of your children's brains into disciples of Marxism. But also (roll call!) Reps. Carson, Conzet, Dryden, Duvall, Gosch, Hajek, Johns, Lust, Novstrup, Otten, Romkema, Rounds, Rozum, Schoenfish, Sly, Solum, Stevens, Tulson, and Werner. 19 Republicans, including four members of the House majority leadership (in bold) collaborating with Democrats to vote against their own party platform.
Worth noting: RINO spin machine Dakota War College maligns Rep. Stace Nelson for working with Democrats to introduce government reform legislation that coheres with Republican platform principles on open government and fairness in immigration. Said spin machine says nothing to take its own Republican leadership to task for working with Democrats to oppose a plank of the Republicans' own platform on education.
