Governor Dayton Says North Dakota Was “Just Trying to Pull Other States in” to #NoDAPL Protests

The feud between the Minnesota Sheriff’s Association and Governor Mark Dayton keeps getting uglier. It started with the MSA sending Dayton a letter accusing him of making a political decision to ignore requests for assistance with the #NoPAL protests made by North Dakota officials through a state compact.

Kudos To Dalrymple For Being The Adult In Fargo Flood Diversion Fight

“North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple should speak up forcefully against Minnesota’s opposition to the Fargo-Moorhead diversion,” reads a Forum News Service editorial from earlier this week. “His reason for not using his authority and credibility — that the matter is in litigation — makes no sense in light of an attempt by an agency of
