News this week is that North Dakota Senator Kevin Cramer has, at the behest of President Donald Trump’s administration, held up the passage of a bipartisan resolution about the Armenian genocide. On Twitter there was outrage (is there ever anything else on Twitter?) from Cramer’s political opponents. Here’s North Dakota House Minority Leader Josh Boschee

Print Column: Heidi Heitkamp Must Think We’re All Very Stupid

MINOT, N.D.—When asked recently by The Hill newspaper whether or not she’d like former President Barack Obama to campaign for her here in North Dakota, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp was blunt in response. “Nope, no,” the paper quoted her as saying. Of course Heitkamp doesn’t want Obama on the campaign trail for her. When it’s an

A source has provided me with a copy of Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s first radio ad. I’m told it’s set to hit the airwaves next week (full disclosure, I have no idea if this has been submitted to the radio station I work at or not). It’s 60 seconds long and pretty interesting stuff. Not surprisingly

If Apathy Counted as Votes Nobody Would Have Won the 2016 Election

It supposes an election map which counts non-votes from eligible American voters as a vote for “none of the above.” Based on

When Senator Heitkamp Needs to Address a Sticky Issue She Retreats to the Friendly Confines of Her Brother’s Radio Show

Hillary Clinton, disgruntled former presidential candidate, has become a real problem for Democrats in places like North Dakota. Democrats like embattled incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp. Recently Clinton bashed red states like North Dakota as backward. “If you look at the map of the United States, there’s all that red in the middle where Trump won,”

Heidi Heitkamp’s Presidential Candidate Thinks North Dakotans Are Backward

Back in 2015, at a Hillary Clinton campaign event in Washington D.C., North Dakota Senator Heidi Heitkamp endorsed Hillary Clinton for president alongside a dozen other female Democrat members of the Senate. You can watch CSPAN’s video of the event here. But Heitkamp was a Clinton backer long before then.  She signed a letter urging Hillary Clinton to

According to reports, Democrats are now putting on seminars aimed at figuring out how to talk to Americans who aren’t inclined to vote for Democrats. “Democratic members of Congress are learning how to converse with regular people during a retreat this week to prepare to battle President Donald Trump,” the Washington Free Beacon reports. “One session at
