The Head of the North Dakota College Democrats Needs Some Remedial Work on Vocabulary

The Head of the North Dakota College Democrats Needs Some Remedial Work on Vocabulary

Last week I wrote that Senator Heidi Heitkamp is the most disingenuous politician in North Dakota. That’s because she’s pretending as though she’s undecided about a 2018 run for the U.S. Senate even as she raised a massive (by North Dakota standards) $1.6 million for her re-election campaign already and then leaked favorable facts about

Audio: Kevin Cramer Says Democrats Caught in “Academic Bubble” Where “Socialism Makes Sense”

Democrats lost their fourth straight special election last night since Donald Trump was elected President. Since 2010 they’ve been losing ground in both state and federal government. Why can’t they win elections? Congressman Kevin Cramer, speaking to me during our regular weekly segment, has some ideas. “They have to get better candidates I think,” he

Audio: Rep. Kevin Cramer Says He’s Thinking About Security at Town Halls After Scalise Shooting

Congressman Kevin Cramer was on the radio show today and, of course, we talked about the shooting of his colleague Rep. Steve Scalise. Cramer said there was a lot of “very somber self reflection” on Capitol Hill today, though he added that he and his colleagues “are trying to go on with business too.” He

Audio: Congressman Kevin Cramer Says Legislating Can Be Easier With Media Focused on Trump, Comey

“There’s some parts of it I’ve found easier,” Congressman Kevin Cramer told me yesterday during our radio interview. I had asked him what it was like to go about making policy amid intense media scrutiny of President Trump. “You don’t have this scrutiny of the hyper media,” Cramer added, though he conceded that while the

State Senator Tom Campbell Apparently Polling Ahead of Potential 2018 Run

State Senator Tom Campbell, a Republican from Grafton, has long made it clear that he’d like to move up the political ladder. He flirted with a gubernatorial run in 2016, though ultimately stayed out of the race. In December, when Congressman Kevin Cramer’s name was in the mix for an appointment in the Trump administration,

Democrats Already Running Campaign Commercials on Behalf of Heidi Heitkamp

“You may not have noticed it…but the North Dakota Senate campaign for the 2018 cycle has already begun,” I wrote back on April 1. The Democrats keep proving me right, acknowledging that Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s re-election bid (which she hasn’t officially announced yet) is in trouble. That’s why the Democrats have set up an operation

Congressman Cramer on Trump Scandals: “Giving the Middle Finger to the Police Officer Isn’t a Good Idea”

With Trump-related controversies dominating the headlines it seems Republicans are opting to two specific defenses. First, that a press corps that is biased against Republicans, generally, and detests Trump, specifically, is misleading the public and overreacting to explainable events. Second, that there is a political conspiracy in the federal government which has, as its agenda, undermining

Senator Heitkamp Sided With Her Party Over North Dakota

I’ve always thought that, when a politician casts a controversial vote, an explanation before that vote is cast is worth a lot more than a justification after the fact. In this op/ed column Senator Heidi Heitkamp does a lot of justifying of her recent vote against overturning an Obama era emissions rule which the state’s

Can North Dakota Democrats Get Their Voters Back From Republicans in 2018?

“I’m betting on Heitkamp against any Republican opponent who’s so far been mentioned,” my friend Mike Jacobs writes today. Senator Heidi Heitkamp, of course, is up for re-election in 2018. She hasn’t officially announced that she’s running yet, but it’s a near certainty she will given how her allies have been out attacking potential Republican
