Republican Lawmaker Says His Residence Is Still in North Dakota Despite Currently Working in Minnesota

Recently the state’s political circles have been buzzing about state Rep. Bill Oliver, a Republican from New Town, supposedly moving to Thief River Falls in Minnesota where he’s managing an O’Reilly Auto Parts Store. This sort of thing has been controversial in recent years. Current House Minority Leader Corey Mock, a Democrat, moved out of his

Democratic District Chair’s Letter to the Editor Is Factually Inaccurate

Yesterday I wrote about Democrats in Fargo’s District 11 appointing a replacement for former state Rep. Kris Wallman who has moved to California. In my post I pointed out that Wallman moved herself and her children to California will in advance of a deadline which would have required that seat be filled by a special

Democrats in Fargo’s District 11 Successfuly Protect Citizens From Democracy

“Rep. Kris Wallman, D-Fargo, has resigned and her party has voted to have Gretchen Dobervich fill the remaining two years of her term,” Tu-Uyen Tran reports for the Fargo Forum today.

Five Lawmakers, Including Democratic U.S. Senate Candidate, Miss Roll Call Vote at Special Session

The legislature convened for a special session this morning, and five state lawmakers were absent. At least for the attendance votes in the House and Senate chambers. The most notable absence was Rep. Eliot Glassheim who, in addition to representing District 18 in the state House, is currently the Democratic candidate for the U.S. Senate

Video: Democrats Are Really, Really Angry About Senate Vacancies Bill

It’s remarkable how riled up North Dakota Democrats are about legislation which would change how the state fills Senate vacancies. Rep. Roscoe Streyle (R-Minot) has introduced legislation to fill vacancies in the state’s U.S. Senate seats with special elections rather than gubernatorial appointments. It’s sound reform given some of the recent shenanigans we’ve seen with

Democrat Legislative Candidate Kris Wallman Criticizes Opponent For Being The Wrong Gender/Skin Color

Earlier today Democrat legislative candidate Kris Wallman, who is running for the state House in District 11, posted a comment on the campaign Facebook candidate Lucas Paper who is running in District 21 (both districts are in Fargo). The comment suggested that Paper and his running mate Robbie Lauf have the wrong skin color and
