Senator Heitkamp’s Latest Ad Says She’ll “Work With Anyone,” but Her Enemies List Says Otherwise

Senator Heitkamp’s Latest Ad Says She’ll “Work With Anyone,” but Her Enemies List Says Otherwise

Publicly Senator Heidi Heitkamp likes to cultivate for herself a reputation as a pragmatic centrist. In fact, that’s the theme of her most recent radio ad (which hits the airwaves today, I posted the audio on Friday). The title of that ad is “Work With Anyone” and it alleges Senator Heitkamp’s willingness to do just

Heitkamp Chief of Staff, Without Irony, Says the Senator’s Key to Success Is to “Get Out and Talk to People”

Politico has made a “power list” of “women to watch” in Washington D.C., and on that list is North Dakota’s own Tessa Gould. Gould is Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s chief of staff, well known the media types in the state as the person who will send you nasty emails and shout at you on the phone

Audio Proof That Doug Burgum Isn't Telling The Truth About Pro-Life Bills

I realize that, for a lot of voters, the abortion issue isn’t very important. Some people simply don’t see it as a priority. That’s fine. But I think we can all agree that candidates being honest about their positions on issues, especially candidates with zero track record in public office, is important. Perhaps the most

Burgum Campaign Has A Point About Stenehjem Consultant On The Radio

Here’s the latest chapter in the increasingly petty Republican gubernatorial primary between Doug Burgum and Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem. Apparently Pat Finken of Odney Advertising sat in for Scott Hennen on his syndicated, state-wide talk radio show today. He used his on-air time to talk about the gubernatorial campaign, including bringing on guests like state

Governor Jack Dalrymple talks about syrian refugees

Dalrymple On Refusing Syrian Refugees: "That Is Not Something A State Government Does"

Governor Jack Dalrymple was interviewed by Scott Hennen this morning on the What’s On Your Mind Show and, not surprisingly, Hennen asked about the situation with refugees and security. Specifically, Hennen asked whether or not Dalrymple would do what governor’s in other states have done which is say “no” to Syrian refugees in our state.

Audio: Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem Forms Gubernatorial Campaign Committee

If there was any doubt Attorney General Wayne Stenehjem is running for governor in 2016 I think we can set them aside. Just moments ago Stenehjem told talk radio host Scott Hennen that he has formed a committee to receive campaign contributions already being sent his way. Hennen asked if that means he’s running and

Scott Hennen: North Dakota's Universities Are At A Dangerous Crossroads

North Dakota is on an incredible run. Even when our boom times take a breather, we’re still crushing it compared to most places We’re the envy of America. With one exception: Higher-Education. It’s in dire need of reform. Political correctness and an academic tyranny could soon destroy the North Dakota University system. The examples are

On Television: Gay Marriage, Polygamy, And The Confederate Flag

I was happy to be a part of Chris Berg’s weekly roundtable discussion on 6:30 Point of View this evening and, much as we have all week, we’ve discussed gay marriage and the confederate flag issue. The other panelists were Scott Hennen and former state lawmaker Bette Grande. Our most heated discussion, without a doubt,

On Television: Distrusting The Government, Except When They're Reading Our Email

I was on television last night on Chris Berg’s 6:30 Point of View Program on Valley News Live alongside John Strand from the High Plains Reader (which publishs my column every week if you’re interested) and Scott Hennen. As always, it was a great discussion. We talked about the Waters of the U.S. rule and
