Video: Senator John Hoeven Addresses Misinformation About #NoDAPL Protests During Floor Speech

Earlier this week Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid spoke on the floor of the U.S. Senate about the Dakota Access Pipeline and the #NoDAPL protests opposing it. It was about what you’d expect. Today North Dakota Senator John Hoeven gave a rebuttal, and it was pretty excellent. Here’s the video, and a full transcript is

North Dakota’s Top Elected Officials, Except Senator Heidi Heitkamp, Call on Obama to Help End #NoDAPL Rioting

In a post earlier today I took aim at President Barack Obama for what I perceive as enabling the increasingly violent #NoDAPL rioting here in North Dakota. What I didn’t know is that our state’s top elected leaders – Governor Jack Dalrymple, Senator John Hoeven, and Rep. Kevin Cramer – would be sending a letter

Standing Rock Sets Aside Money for Lawsuit Against Cops Over Response to #NoDAPL Protests

Over the weekend hundreds rallied at the state capitol in support of the cops who have responded to the #NoDAPL protests in south central North Dakota.

What Does 2016 Mean for 2018 in North Dakota?

It was a bad night for North Dakota’s Democrats last night, as I’ve written about elsewhere, but what does it all mean for the 2018 elections? Barring some unforeseen scandal or political calamity it’s hard to imagine Democrats doing any worse in the Legislature. They’ll spend the next two years holding just 13 seats in

North Dakota’s Democratic U.S. House Candidate Says He Can’t Endorse Hillary Clinton

Earlier this year North Dakota’s Democrats made a lot of hay over Republican Senator John Hoeven’s tepid support-but-not-endorse stance on presidential candidate Donald Trump. “I can tell you that he is not endorsing in the presidential race and that he will support the nominee of the party,” Hoeven told Politico in May, a response the Washington Post

Senator John Hoeven Condemns Trump Comments but Doesn’t Withdraw Support

Here’s a statement sent out by Senator John Hoeven’s campaign today in response to the news of offensive comments from Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump which broke yesterday.

That should have been clear some time ago, but after the most recent revelations of comments he made about women back in 2005 (see the video below if you need to catch up), there isn’t enough political cover in

Audio: Senator John Hoeven Says Standing Rock Tribe Was Consulted on Dakota Access Pipeline

One of the most consistent talking points deployed by the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe and its environmental activist allies is that they weren’t sufficiently consulted about the Dakota Access Pipeline.
