Winner of $400M border wall contract: 'a gung-ho, smart guy'
By JAMES MacPHERSON
BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) - The driving force behind a North Dakota company that won a $400 million contract to build part of the border wall is described as a “go-getter” and a “gung-ho, smart guy” by people who know him. Tommy Fisher runs Fisher Sand & Gravel, a company his father founded in 1952. Fisher's strategy for winning the contract included a bevy of appearances on conservative media often seen by the president. It paid off with a contract that Fisher says is the second-biggest in the country's history. But the contract is now being audited over concern it may not meet requirements.
