Plain Talk: Senator Cramer Says of Border Deal, “I Like It Ok. I Certainly Don’t Love It.”

On this episode of Plain Talk, Senator Kevin Cramer takes listener questions (he’s on every week, email your questions any time to rob@sayanythingblog.com).

Trump to Sign Funding Ban for Universities Hosting Chinese Institute Once Touted at North Dakota Universities

Back in 2010 the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education approved requests from Dickinson State University and North Dakota State to create Confucius Institutes on their campuses.

Yesterday Mike Nowatzki had an article suggesting that there will be two high-profile keynote speakers at the North Dakota Republican Party’s state convention next month. Today I can report that one of those speakers will be former national candidate Ben Carson. Carson dropped out of the national GOP’s presidential nomination race earlier this month and has

Donald Trump Wins North Dakota Straw Poll

North Dakota’s Republicans didn’t hold a primary or a caucus this election cycle for reasons that are a little difficult to fathom. Some in the state party argue that it’s better for our states delegates, selected at the NDGOP’s statewide convention, to participate in the national convention without being bound by a vote to any
