Senator John Hoeven: Affair Scandal Doesn’t Disqualify Wrigley From Governor Race

Senator John Hoeven appeared on AM1100 WZFG with Steve Hallstrom this morning and was asked about the scandal around Drew Wrigley’s affair, the news of which broke here on SAB yesterday. Hoeven said that he doesn’t believe the scandal should stop Wrigley from running for governor. In related news, the children in charge of the

Heidi Heitkamp Says She’ll Vote Against Defunding Group That Was Apparently Selling Intact Dead Babies

The news on the Planned Parenthood controversy keeps getting worse. The group successfully got an injunction prohibiting the release of additional undercover videos arguing that it violated the privacy of their staff and put them in danger (something nobody seemed to care about when it was, say, Mitt Romney being secretly recorded). But one of


Attorney General: Group Used Inaccurate Leaked Draft Report To Name ND Sanctuary State

Over the last week or so I’ve been writing (see here, here, and here) about a Center for Immigration Studies report which named North Dakota a “sanctuary state” which does not cooperate with federal efforts to deport illegal immigrants. The problem is, CIS got it wrong, and I can now report how they got it


These Maps Illustrate Why The EPA’s New Waters Of The U.S. Rule Is So Scary

“North Dakota’s congressional delegation isn’t happy about a new rule finalized by the Environmental Protection Agency today,” reports Mike Chaussee for KXNet. “Senator Heidi Heitkamp says she’s frustrated. Senator John Hoeven says he’s concerned. And Representative Kevin Cramer calls the decision disturbing.” But if you haven’t been following this issue you may be wondering why there’s so much


Farm Groups: Hoeven Deal Doesn’t Fix “Bought” And “Corrupted” Federal Conservation Agency

While North Dakotans were debating Measure 5 on the 2014 ballot – that was the one which would have diverted hundreds of millions in oil tax revenues to a slush fund for conservation groups – farm groups began to wonder why the measure’s primary sponsor, Ducks Unlimited, was allowed to hire personnel for the federal


On Television: Heidi Heitkamp Tries To Bully The Media Again

My segment last night with Chris Berg on Valley News Live’s 6:30 Point of View program began with some comments from VNL reporter Bradford Arick. Arick described a phone call he got from U.S. Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s office complaining about some questions he asked during the Heitkamp-guided visit by embattled Department of Homeland Security official


Hoeven On Filling Senate Vacancies: “I’m Always Good With Going To The People”

Rep. Roscoe Streyle set off something of a firestorm with legislation that would change how North Dakota would fill vacancies in its representation in the U.S. Senate. Currently the U.S. Constitution requires that House vacancies be filled by a special election, but because Senators used to be picked by the state governments (up until the

No Senator John Hoeven Is Not A Traitor

A group of U.S. Senators, including North Dakota Senator John Hoeven, recently signed a letter to the Iranian government warning the country that any diplomatic agreement with President Barack Obama must be approved by Congress. Now the New York Daily News has branded these Senators “traitors,” and a WhiteHouse.gov petition is calling for their arrest. It’s
