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. There are five candidates in that race, but two real front runners, state Senators Tom Campbell and Kelly Armstrong. The latter Senator has said on the record that he will abide by the

Campbell for Senate Radio Ads Still Running

Earlier this week a reader sent me a mailer he’d received from the Tom Campbell campaign which still had the state Senator running against Democratic incumbent Heidi Heitkamp for the U.S. Senate.

Whoops: House Candidate Tom Campbell’s Campaign Still Sending Out Mailers for the U.S. Senate Race

State Senator Tom Campbell has spent a lot of his own money on what was first a campaign for the U.S. Senate and then, once Republican Congressman Kevin Cramer announced his Senate campaign, a campaign for the U.S. House. The last public disclosure of campaign finances shows that Campbell given his own campaign, through the

Poor Tom Campbell

I’d be lying to you folks if I didn’t admit that state Senator Tom Campbell’s campaign for federal office, started in August last year, has always had a tincture of vanity to it. A perception that isn’t entirely unfair given what we know of Campbell’s campaign finances to date. According to his latest filing with

After All the Announcements and Maneuvering, Here’s What North Dakota’s Federal Races Look Like This Morning

Congressman Kevin Cramer announced last week that he’s running for the U.S. Senate. That has set off a ripple of maneuvering across Republican political circles, and I thought I’d round up what everything looks like as of this morning. First, as I wrote over the weekend, we can expect current NDGOP Chairman, and Dickinson-area state

Expect NDGOP Chairman Kelly Armstrong to Be in the U.S. House Race Within a Week

Yesterday I wrote that NDGOP Chairman Kelly Armstrong was considering a run for the U.S. House now that Republican incumbent Kevin Cramer is in the Senate race. Today sources tell me that Armstrong, who is also a state Senator from Dickinson, has been making calls this weekend to line up his campaign. “He is saying

NDGOP Chairman Kelly Armstrong Is Interested in U.S. House Race, Goettle Says He’s Not Making Any Decisions

Earlier today I wrote a post speculating about what the U.S. House race might look like here in North Dakota now that incumbent Republican Kevin Cramer is (all but) officially in the Senate race.
