FARGO, N.D. -

Senator John Hoeven says he supports Donald Trump for President so the country can get back to the fundamentals.

Hoeven says the country needs to focus on reducing the regulatory burden and finding real tax reform that helps the nation's people.

Hoeven, who is campaigning to keep his seat from Democratic rival Eliot Glassheim, says he will focus on similar things for North Dakota.

As for his political support, he says Trump is better than the alternatives.

"I support Trump because I think he would be better for our state and our country than Senator Clinton.  I think Senator...Secretary Clinton would bring the continued approach of the Obama Administration which is big government, more regulation and more spending," said Sen. Hoeven.
