Last Election Cycle Democratic Gubernatorial Candidate Marvin Nelson Paid Family Member to Be Campaign Manager

Because Senator Heidi Heitkamp is terrified that Congressman Kevin Cramer might run for her seat this year she’s deployed her surrogates to manufacture a scandal over Cramer paying family members to work for his campaign. As I’ve already written, Cramer isn’t paying them very much. In fact, he spends to be paying his family a

Tax Reform Bill Will Probably Mean Lower Utility Bills for Many North Dakotans

Here’s some interesting news from the Public Service Commission. News which undermines the talking points we’ve been getting from the left about how Republican-backed tax reform won’t help the average citizen. Regulators will be making a decision today on whether or not to investigate the potential impact of tax reform legislation passed just before the

Senate Leadership Fund Starts Ad Campaign Hitting Heitkamp Over Vote Against Tax Reform

“Heidi Heitkamp made a huge mistake siding with Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi to obstruct middle class tax cuts,” Steven Law, head of a Super PAC called the Senate Leadership Fund, said in a recent press release. “We will take it to Democrats over and over this year on tax reform and are confident it

There Is Nothing Wrong With Kevin Cramer Paying His Family to Work on His Campaign

Senator Heidi Heitkamp, despite her carefully cultivated public demeanor, is a petty and vindictive politician. But don’t take my word on it. The attack Heitkamp’s partisan surrogates launched on Congressman Kevin Cramer (a man on the verge of announcing a campaign for Heitkamp’s Senate seat) this week is evidence enough. It was a two-pronged assault,

Rep. Kevin Cramer Expected to Meet With President Donald Trump Tuesday Ahead of Likely Senate Run

It’s safe to move North Dakota Congressman Kevin Cramer from the “undecided” to “likely to run” column for the 2018 U.S. Senate race. According to multiple sources Cramer will be meeting with President Donald Trump on Tuesday this week to discuss the matter, and the indications I’m getting almost universally from Republican political circles is

Senator Heitkamp Didn’t Mean It When She Said “Zero Tolerance” for Sexual Harassment

Earlier this month embattled Minnesota Senator Al Franken delivered a self-serving, self-pitying speech on the Senate floor in which he announced that he’d be announcing his resignation at some point in the future. It was a truly bizarre speech, and many (including this observer) thought it was Franken buying himself some time to rehabilitate his

Cramer Says House Committee Promotion Makes Decision on Senate Run More Difficult

North Dakota Republicans are getting low on options when it comes to getting control of the one seat elected on the statewide ballot they don’t control. Right now the only official Republican challenger to incumbent Democratic Senator Heidi Heitkamp is state Senator Tom Campbell, but he’s widely (and rightly) seen as a long shot. Other

Though Donald Trump has yet to name a Democrat to his Cabinet, Heitkamp is said to be a top contender to lead the Department of Agriculture — a posting that would also trigger a special election to fill her Senate seat.

Senator Heitkamp Sends Email to Constituents Retracting Misleading Tax Reform Talking Point

The saga of the bogus talking point deployed by Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s office as political cover for her vote against tax reform continues today. Last week I wrote about Heitkamp claiming that North Dakotans could get a $10,000 tax hike if the tax reform expires, something that’s absolutely false. That resulted in the Senator deleting

Senator Heidi Heitkamp Continues to Use Bogus, Retracted Talking Point About Tax Reform

In a sign of just how desperate Senator Heidi Heitkamp and her allies are to muddy the waters around her vote against tax reform, she is continuing to use a debunked talking point about the impact of that reform she retracted last week. In a December 7 tweet (since deleted) Heitkamp claimed that tax reform
