Heidi Heitkamp Still Clear As Mud On Gun Rights

With President Obama set to address the nation tomorrow on his agenda for gun control, and with Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s gun control debacle from two weeks ago still ringing in the ears of North Dakotans, the Senator sat down with local media to give us all another heaping helping of dissembling on her gun rights

Dorso Column: What Was Blue Cross Thinking?

What are they thinking? BCBS of ND hires a Democrat, Paul von Ebers as their CEO.  That wouldn’t bother most but then he hires Denise Kolpack a known Democrat operative, and former campaign manager for North Dakota’s junior Senator Heidi Heitkamp, as Chief of Staff.   Even that might be passed over as a legitimate move

Anti-Gun Group Declares Victory Over Heitkamp: "She Got The Message"

Grand Forks Herald Applies Double Standard To Republicans, Democrats

According to the Grand Forks Herald’s editorial today, recently-elected Representative Kevin Cramer needs to prove himself on the farm bill. “If a new Farm Bill passes out of the House Agriculture Committee in the next few months, Cramer should make it his mission to ensure that the bill reaches the House floor for a vote,”

Heidi Heitkamp Doesn't Want Bigger Deficits So She'll Vote To Raise The Debt Ceiling

I had to laugh when I heard this news report from Senator Heidi Heitkamp who says she’ll vote to raise the debt ceiling because if we don’t we might add to the deficit. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sxsAy4R_jqo&w=640&h=360] Senator Heitkamp must have gone to the Kent Conrad school of decreasing the deficit by spending more. As for Heitkamp’s
