BISMARCK, N.D. — The director of North Dakota’s Democratic Party is resigning.
Joe Aronson says Monday he is taking a job as director of the Democratic Party in Delaware.
He’s held his North Dakota job since August 2009. Aronson says he’ll stay in the position until late May.
During Aronson’s tenure, Republicans gained two-thirds control of both houses of the North Dakota Legislature. Democrats lost North Dakota’s U.S. House seat and one of its two U.S. Senate seats to Republicans.
State Democratic chairman Mark Schneider says Aronson took his job at a difficult time for the party. But Schneider says Democrats are on “a course for victory” in 2012.
The last line is the real kicker (pun intended). So, they kick out Mr. Aronson, and are now on “a course for victory”… I imply that this means that the Delaware’s Democrats are now following Mr. Aronson’s leadership, which has led to broad defeat in North Dakota. I must say that I appreciate Delaware’s Democrats for trying to assist those of us on the Republican side. We can’t get out of our own way, so you’ve brought in someone who can help us.
Truly the “Delaware Way”…
