This guest post was submitted by Kari Bitz, a North Dakota business owner and author from Bismarck. It may not make headlines in the national news, but President Trump’s “Buy American” policies have been life-changing for my family and me. As small business owners in Bismarck, my husband and I were surprised when we received

New York Times Uses Same Misleading Photo of Soybean Pile the Heitkamp Campaign Got Caught Using

Farm state Democrats like Senator Heidi Heitkamp have attacking President Donald Trump’s trade policies, arguing they’ve been bad for the agriculture industry. Which is fair. We can debate the point, but promoting contrasting views on important policies like trade tariffs is exactly what campaigns should be about (and aren’t nearly about enough). Still, a specific

Do We Only Care About Security Costs When Republicans Visit North Dakota?

President Trump has made multiple visits to Fargo this election cycle in support of U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer, and the reaction from incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s surrogates in the press was to get bent out of shape about the cost of security. Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney even requested that Republicans reimburse law enforcement expenses.

Podcast: Birthright Citizenship, Complaints About Heitkamp Canvassers, Measure 3, Marc Lotter

On the radio show today we talked a lot about President Donald Trump proposing to make changes to birthright citizenship policies through executive order.

President Trump Shouldn’t End Birthright Citizenship Through Executive Order

In an interview with Axios, President Donald Trump has announced that he’ll attempt to end birthright citizenship for the children of illegal immigrants by way of an executive order. I say attempt, because any order his administration issues is sure to be immediately challenged in the courts, and his ability to change this policy unilaterally

A Political Rally Sounds Like a Fine Place for the President to Be During a Hurricane

“Trump bets there’s no downside to campaigning as hurricane rages,” reads a headline from CNN. “President Donald Trump tempted fate and nature by declining to cancel an optically risky campaign rally and fundraiser even as the most powerful hurricane in a quarter century thrashed across the Florida Panhandle,” the articles lede proclaims. That’s right. There is political risk

What Will Democrats Do if It Turns Out Trump Is Right on Trade?

Democrats, particularly “red state” candidates like incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp and U.S. House candidate Mac Schneider, have placed a big bet on trade this election cycle. Specifically, they’ve positioned themselves to benefit politically from any news about chaos or failure from the Trump administration’s efforts to negotiate better international trade agreements. Thus the news this

Print Column: What if Democratic Electioneering Is Hurting Our Ability to Get Better Trade Deals?

MINOT, N.D. — Based on Sen. Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign messaging, her challenger, Rep. Kevin Cramer, doesn’t care about farmers. This isn’t true, of course. While we can have a debate about the efficacy of the sort of agriculture policies Cramer and Republicans support, Heitkamp’s assertion of indifference is an election year lie. Our liberal friends

Does Senator Heitkamp Condone Her Talk Radio Host Brother’s Ugly Comments About President Trump?

A major part of Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s re-election campaign has been posturing herself as an ally of President Donald Trump. From the earliest days of the marketing campaign to re-elect her, Heitkamp has touted that she’s voted with Trump more than half of the time. For a while Democrats and left wing commentators even tried

“Elevators in the eastern portion of the state have pulled their bids for soybeans,” Dr. Frayne Olson, a crop economics expert from North Dakota State University, tells the Williston Herald. “There is literally no price for soybeans.” Right now Olson said there is only a small number of elevators in our region where this is
