It Sure Seems Like Senator Kevin Cramer Is Throwing Shade at His Predecessor Heidi Heitkamp Over Delaying Senate Confirmations

North Dakota got some good news on Senate nominations this week. Last month I wrote in a print column that North Dakota was just months away from having no full-time federal judges. This week we learned that Grand Forks attorney Peter Welte has been scheduled for a confirmation hearing this week. Also, North Dakota hasn’t

Of Course Ethics Investigations Should Be Secret

During the last election cycle a left-wing, Democrat-aligned group filed an ethics complaint against Republican candidate Tom Campbell because one of his campaign ads featured him standing in front of a truck with his business logo on it. The complaint was announced to the media by the left wing groups filing it. The complaint went

The Butt Hurt Over Senator Cramer Backing Savanna’s Act Is Just More Ugly Partisanship From Heitkamp Supporters

If you’re a Democrat, and a Republican comes out in favor of a piece of policy you support, shouldn’t that make you happy? It should, but sadly in our bitterly partisan environment, there are plenty who eschew progress in favor of petty political recrimination. One recent and local example of this is the opposition from

Heitkamp to North Dakota: It’s Ironic You Rubes Didn’t Vote for Me

Now comes the time in erstwhile Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s political career when she works with sympathetic media allies to try and rewrite the history of her fall from elected office. The Senator did an interview with my colleague Mike McFeely – a former employee of her brother’s – and in it suggested there is “great

Experiment Shows Republican Emails Far More Likely to Be Filtered as Spam

There has been a lot of talk about ideological bias in the tech world, but most of that has centered on social media platforms. But what if your email service’s spam filter were far more likely to hit emails sent from right-of-center candidates and groups than their counterparts on the left? IMGE is a digital

Here’s the vote tally, per the party: 19-Yes 29-No 8-Absent/Not Voting The resolution would have needed 29 “yes” votes to pass, so it wasn’t particularly close. The issue was brought to the state party by District

Read It: Governor Burgum, Senator-Elect Cramer Tell NDGOP in Letter Not to Give up Open Primary

Last week I wrote about proposed legislation, being considered for endorsement by the North Dakota Republican Party, which if passed would end North Dakota’s open primary system. In our state the political parties hold endorsing conventions, but the actual nominees are chosen in a statewide vote in June of election years. Some, arguing that political

Video: Senator Heitkamp, Who Still Hasn’t Congratulated Senator-Elect Cramer, Delivers Angry and Tearful Farewell Speech

Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s last address on the floor of the U.S. Senate today came off less like a graceful farewell than a not terribly coherent stump speech delivered with tearful emotion and a rambling sort of vitriol. She sounded at times like a peeved schoolmarm lecturing we bad boys and girls about how we have
