SBHE Member Kathy Neset Not Challenging Heitkamp in Senate Race

According to a report in the Tioga Tribune, oil field consultant and State Board of Higher Education member Kathy Neset will not be running for the U.S. Senate this cycle. Though she’s not ruling out a future run. “I hope the time comes again,” she told her hometown paper. “I’d love to serve in the Senate

Report From 2016 Alleges Inappropriate Language, Gender Bias From NDUS Chancellor

Until last week Lisa Feldner was a vice chancellor in the North Dakota University System, but Chancellor Mark Hagerott fired her. Allegedly for “making derogatory comments to staff” and “suggesting they could lose their jobs,” my colleague Patrick Springer reported yesterday. I’m told by university system sources that Feldner was fired by email but then

Governor Doug Burgum Probably Isn’t Going to Run for the U.S. Senate

UPDATE: Governor Burgum has responded to my request for comment. He said there is “no truth whatsoever” to the rumors. Speculation and rumor mongering about North Dakota’s 2018 U.S. Senate race is in high gear, all the more so because incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp announced her re-election campaign officially this week. There are lots and lots

Voters Getting Call From Pollster Testing Becker, Schmidt Against Heitkamp

Multiple SAB readers contacted me last night and this morning saying they’ve been getting polled on potential match ups in North Dakota’s 2018 Senate race. Incumbent Democrat Heidi Heitkamp announced that she’s running for re-election this morning, which is news to exactly nobody given the millions from out of state she’s already been stuffing in

Border States Electric CEO Tammy Miller Considering Challenging Heitkamp for Senate Seat

North Dakota’s Senate race is heating up for Republicans. Congressman Kevin Cramer is considering a Senate run, and state Senator Tom Campbell of Grafton (who will be on my radio show this afternoon) is officially in the race and campaigning hard.

Potential Senate Candidate Kathy Neset Got a Lot of Attention at Trump Speech Yesterday

“People were all over Neset yesterday,” a SAB reader who was in attendance at President Donald Trump’s speech in Mandan tells me. Neset, of course, is geologist and State Board of Higher Education member Kathy Neset who is being recruited by the North Dakota Republican Party for a possible run for the U.S. Senate. I broke

State Rep. Rick Becker Says Decision on Senate Run May Have to Wait Until September but Won’t Hinge on Cramer

We know that state Senator Tom Campbell of Grafton is considering a run for the NDGOP nomination to challenge Democratic U.S. Senate incumbent Heidi Heitkamp (who is absolutely running for re-election despite her silly posturing). We also know that both Kathy Neset, an oil industry consultant and member of the North Dakota State Board of

NDGOP Recruiting SBHE President Kathy Neset for Possible Senate Run

Despite a great deal of disingenuous posturing, there’s no question that U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp is running for a second term in office. She’s raised a mountain of money already in the first quarter of 2017. You don’t do that if you’re genuinely planning to retire. So she’s running. Who will Republicans run against her?
