Video: Left Wing Town Hall Activists Undermine Their Credibility by Screaming at Cramer and Exempting Heitkamp

The local iteration of Indivisible – a national left wing group created to harrass Republican members of Congress in their states/districts – challenged North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer to a town hall.

There is a push in Congress right now to disapprove an Obama administration regulation aimed at the oil industry. The so-called “venting and flaring” rule imposed by the Bureau of Land Management is so colossally broad it impacts not just federal lands but state lands as well.

Governor Doug Burgum Should Just Accept His Salary Already

During his campaign earlier this year Doug Burgum vowed to turn down his salary if elected governor. Well, he won. Now Governor Burgum says he’s got a legal team on the problem of how to legally turn down his salary. “You would think that as governor that on the first day you could say, ‘I refuse

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?
