Not A Single Democrat Speaks In Favor Of Anti-Free Speech Bill They Introduced

Not A Single Democrat Speaks In Favor Of Anti-Free Speech Bill They Introduced

North Dakota Demcorats, since they can’t seem to win enough elections to be all that relevant to governing the state, are fond of introducing stunt bills which they can then turn into talking points for the media.

Kylie Oversen Is New Chair For North Dakota Democrats

Today in a meeting in Jamestown, North Dakota Democrats picked a new leader for their party following the announced resignation of former Chairman Bob Valeu. They picked 25-year-old, first-term state Rep. Kylie Oversen. I’m told there was no other candidate. Warren Larson, a staffer for former U.S. Senator Byron Dorgan, was chosen as Vice Chairman.

North Dakota Democrats Launch Sexist Attack Over Gender Pay Legislation

Last week a bill introduced by Rep. Kylie Oversen (D-Grand Forks) to address perceived gender pay discrimination was defeated on the floor of the House.

Democrats Won't Say If They've Requested Student Data For Political Purposes

We’re in the “red zone” for the election year, with early voting having commenced and election day just a few weeks away, and for some reason Democrats have decided to make an open records request by a Republican-aligned marketing firm for student data that is public record a really big issue.
