Heidi Heitkamp Still Has Over $4.5 Million in Her Senate Campaign, and How She’s Been Spending It Will Raise Some Eyebrows

There was a $2,700 bill at the Acqua Al 2 restaurant in Washington, D.C. There were also big tabs at the London West Hollywood restaurant in Beverly Hills, the ultra-fancy Mayflower Hotel in D.C., and the Napa Valley Grille in Los Angeles. On top of that, there was more than $6,700 spent at Schneider’s of

I Guess Lynching-Themed Rhetoric Is Ok When Democrats Like Heidi Heitkamp Do It?

Recently a typically bombastic President Donald Trump referred to efforts to impeach him as a “lynching.” So some day, if a Democrat becomes President and the Republicans win the House, even by a tiny margin, they can impeach the President, without due process or fairness or any legal rights. All Republicans must remember what they

Print Column: The Left’s Commitment to Wokeness Ends When It’s Time to Do Business With Communists

MINOT, N.D. — Not so long ago we here in North Dakota had a debate about refugee resettlement. Some of our elected leaders, including Fargo City Commissioner Dave Piepkorn and former West Fargo state lawmaker Chris Olson, wanted to collect more data on the social and fiscal impacts of refugee resettlement. They pushed for the state

Why Is Mike McFeely So Obsessed With Senator Kevin Cramer?

Left-wing columnist Mike McFeely has a column up today criticizing Republican North Dakota Senator Kevin Cramer for his defense of President Donald Trump. That’s not unusual. He writes about Cramer a lot. Just a few days ago, McFeely had another column criticizing Cramer for his support of Trump. There was a podcast too from McFeely

Our Nation’s Political and Business Leaders Don’t Have the Luxury of Ignoring China’s Suppression of Democracy Any More

A few days ago former North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp wrote a column critical of the Trump administration’s approach to China. It wasn’t a particularly insightful piece, meandering as it did through the typical Democratic talking points on that issue. What was notable, actually, is what wasn’t in the column. Not a single mention, anywhere,

Heidi Heitkamp Rails Against “Ultra-Conservative” Judges, but She Voted for Most of Them

Since I write about politics for a living I end up on a lot of political email lists. I also have a lot of political emails forwarded to me. Which I don’t mind since it allows me to kind of monitor the zeitgeist of campaign messaging in a given moment. Today a reader forwarded me

Print Column: If Democrats Want to Re-Elect Trump, They Should Impeach Kavanaugh

MINOT, N.D. — I’m not a very demonstrative person. Still, I laughed right out loud when I read the excuse House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-NY) had for not pursuing the impeachment against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh. I scared my dog, Molly, even. “We have our hands full with impeaching the president right

Conservative Group Hires Relative of Former Senator Heidi Heitkamp

Sierra Heitkamp is a North Dakota State University student, currently pursuing degrees in Agriculture Economics and Political Science. During the 2018 election cycle, she was also a Republican candidate for elected office, running for the state Senate in District 21. She was unsuccessful in that Fargo-area district, which isn’t surprising for a Republican candidate given that

Some Democrats Relieved Heitkamp Won’t Run for Governor

Yesterday I shared polling from Governor Doug Burgum’s not-yet-officially-announced re-election campaign showing the incumbent with a commanding lead in a hypothetical match-up with former Senator Heidi Heitkamp. Reacting to that poll later in the day, Heitkamp said that particular competition would remain strictly hypothetical. Heitkamp tells Bismarck Tribune she's not running for governor next year

Burgum Polls Himself Against Heidi Heitkamp Ahead of 2020 Campaign

Governor Doug Burgum’s re-election campaign has been polling, and gave me exclusive access to the results. You can read their full polling memo below. There are a couple of things about this poll which are just as interesting as the actual numbers. First, there has been some whispers in state political circles that Burgum might
