NDGOP Convention Tops 1,600 Registered Delegates, Democrats Seated 612

If the state party conventions are a measure of enthusiasm of political activists in the state, Republicans seem to have a major advantage. I’m attending the NDGOP state convention in Grand Forks today, and a party official confirmed to me that they now have over 1,600 delegates registered. To put that in context, the North

Tom Campbell Campaign Gets Bailed Out by NDGOP Decision Allowing Paid for Delegates to Avoid Disclosure

Last night at a candidate forum put on by the Cass County United Republicans Committee state Senator Tom Campbell, a candidate for the U.S. House, claimed his campaign has paid for very few delegates to attend the NDGOP’s state convention.

Campbell Campaign Won’t Say if They’re Paying for Delegates to Attend State Convention

The NDGOP convention next month is a little more high stakes than usual thanks to a contested race for the House endorsement.

Kelly Armstrong: North Dakotans Deserve Better Than Senator Heitkamp’s Fear Mongering

This prompted Campbell’s campaign to ban Tefft from their social media

Kelly Armstrong: Heidi Heitkamp Can’t Afford to Turn Her Back on Tax Reform

And while the President’s personal approval ratings have taken a bit of a hit because of his outspoken candor, public support for his policy initiatives like tax reform remains quite strong. In fact, 42% of North Dakotans said they would

Audio: NDGOP Director Says “We Are Behind President Trump and His Agenda” While Accusing Heitkamp of Obstruction

Conventional political wisdom is that a President with low approval numbers is a hindrance to his political party. But when it comes to President Donald Trump and North Dakota, I’m not sure anyone actually believes that. Not only are Democrats in North Dakota treating Trump with kid gloves, but Republicans aren’t shy about backing him
