North Dakota Republican Senator Kevin Cramer spoke truthfully on Tuesday about his party's priorities.
Speaking to reporters on Tuesday after a private Republican Caucus lunch focused on a bipartisan gun control deal, Cramer stated:
"I think we are more interested in red waves than we are in red flags quite honestly as Republicans..."

Cramer's comments come less than a month after a string of mass shootings.
But is the GOP's unwavering support of gun sales the best strategy for 2022 or will voters who overwhelmingly support gun control vote accordingly?
Poll after poll indicates voters in the United states support a variety of gun control measures the GOP is blocking on behalf of the National Rifle Association (NRA) and their gun manufacturer donors.
Response to his comment was less than favorable.
\u201c@JoyousPanther @igorbobic We\u2019ve been told very bluntly that this their intentions and beliefs and once again they don\u2019t care who knows it. So get used to it.\u201d— Igor Bobic (@Igor Bobic) 1655230410
\u201c@igorbobic Yes I love how their $2+ billion corporate tax cut never gets mentioned as a cause of inflation. Let\u2019s cut taxes without paying for it.\u201d— Igor Bobic (@Igor Bobic) 1655230410
\u201c@UPBeachBum @igorbobic The suburban Philly County I live in has 550k people, so no, this isn't democracy.\u201d— Igor Bobic (@Igor Bobic) 1655230410
\u201c@igorbobic The truth of the @gop Owning the libs is more important than the safety of Americans from gun violence. #GunReformNow #VoteThemOut #DemandBetter\u201d— Igor Bobic (@Igor Bobic) 1655230410
Are gun profits over people, especially children, the way to go this year?
They'll find out for certain in November.
