Heidi Heitkamp Leaked Her Fundraising Numbers Early Because She Didn’t Want You to See Where the Money Came From

When a politician leaks information about their campaign finances to the media ahead of actually releasing their legally required report it’s usually because they want the public to focus on one aspect of the report and not others. Once all the journalists are done reporting on the leaked figures the report itself can seem like

Senator Elizabeth Warren Would Really, Really Like You to Re-Elect Heidi Heitkamp

Earlier this year the National Republican Senatorial Committee announced that they were launching an ad campaign against North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp, trying to tie her voting record to that of far-left Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth Warren. “During her time in Washington, Heidi Heitkamp has positioned herself squarely on the left, voting with Massachusetts Senator Elizabeth

Audio: Rep. Kevin Cramer Says It’s “Amazing How Much Democrats…Like to Pretend Their Losses Are Victories”

Republicans survived intense special election challenges from Democrats in Kansas and (so far) Georgia. The latter is subject to a runoff election after no candidates got a majority of the vote in the general election, but in both instances the left has been trying to suggest that their almost wins portend something bad for Republicans

Left Wing Columnist Apparently Trying to Help Kevin Cramer Win an Election

“The company that built the Dakota Access Pipeline is a major campaign contributor to North Dakota U.S. Rep. Kevin Cramer,” my colleague Mike McFeely wrote yesterday. He sees this as a scandal, apparently. “The congressman, as expected, is wholly unapologetic. Optics be darned,” he writes. Optics? What optics? Congressman Cramer represents North Dakota. A state

Democrat on Why He’s Going to Primary Heidi Heitkamp: “There Are People Who Aren’t Satisfied”

Yesterday on my radio show I had on Dustin Peyer. Peyer is a former legislative candidate, the current chairman for the Democratic Party in District 28, and a man who says he’s going to challenge incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp in the 2018 cycle. At a time when Democrats and their various allies are all-in on

Democrat Expected to Announce Primary Challenge Against Incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp

It’s April of 2017, yet I can’t seem to avoid writing about next year’s U.S. Senate election. Earlier today I wrote about Senator Heidi Heitkamp making herself an ally of President Donald Trump and how smart that is, politically. But that decision is not without some repercussions within her own party. Heitkamp has some vocal

Heidi Heitkamp’s Smartest Political Move for 2018 Was Making Herself an Ally of Donald Trump

I wrote in my print column a couple of weeks ago that 2018 campaign for incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s seat in Congress had already begun. Given the sustained political assault on Congressman Kevin Cramer, the most talked about potential challenger for Heitakmp, since that column published the words I wrote seem downright prescient. Heitkamp’s campaign leaked

In Letter Former North Dakota Candidate Warns Fellow Democrats About Focus on Identity Politics

Yesterday I wrote a post about fracturing among North Dakota Democrats which became evident at the state party’s recent reorganization meeting. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, the only Democrat to win an election on the statewide ballot since 2008, apparently got heckled when she addressed party members. “She looked fairly shocked,” an active Democrat who attended the

It’s Way Too Early for Senator Heidi Heitkamp to Have a Challenger

You can tell, from their early and aggressive messaging, that the Democrats are running scared over the idea that Congressman Kevin Cramer might challenge Senator Heidi Heitkamp for her Senate seat next year. It’s resulted in some true silliness, such as this tweet from (soon to be former) North Dakota Democratic Party Executive Director Robert

Senator Heidi Heitkamp Apparently Heckled During Address to Party as North Dakota Democrats Fracture

Over the weekend the North Dakota Democratic-Nonpartisan League held a reorganization at which party chairwoman Kylie Oversen, a former lawmaker who lost her seat in last year’s election, won another cycle as the party’s leader. Publicly the party is painting smiley faces all over the reorganization. “The amazing participation at today’s meeting is a clear sign
