For the First Time I Think Donald Trump Could Actually Win This Thing

For the First Time I Think Donald Trump Could Actually Win This Thing

I’m not a fan of Donald Trump. I think I’ve made that abundantly clear. I am a fan of Trump supporter Peter Thiel who addressed the RNC convention last night ahead of Trump’s acceptance of the party’s presidential nomination (more on that in a later post). But Trump? I still don’t get it. That said,

What’s Good for Senator Hoeven Is Good for Senator Heitkamp

In their editorial today the Grand Forks Herald calls on Senator John Hoeven to speak out about Donald Trump. What occasioned the editorial is criticism from Hoeven’s opponent this election year, Democratic candidate Eliot Glassheim, accusing the incumbent of an only tepid endorsement of his party’s controversial and divisive presidential candidate. (You can listen to my

But What if Hillary Clinton Really Is a Crooked Liar?

That made North Dakota’s caucus last night kind of important, as implausible as that might seem. Normally our state is almost irrelevant to presidential politics, but

This Is Why North Dakota Will Go To Donald Trump In 2016

Before and after Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump visited the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck North Dakota’s Democrats were making a lot of political hay. Senate candidate Eliot Glassheim has called Trump’s rhetoric “offensive, inexcusable and even dangerous.” “Donald Trump represents fear, ignorance, and hatred while demeaning women,” House candidate Chase Iron eyes has

"We Need To Stand Up For Coal Country" Says Noted Hillary Clinton Supporter

Back in March Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said her policies would “put a lot of coal miners and coal companies out of business.” That comment has come to haunt Clinton. In West Virginia it lost her the backing of an influential organization of coal miners. But Clinton doesn’t seem to have lost the support
