Another Ad Attacking Rick Berg Pulled From Television Stations Due To Inaccuracies

Another Ad Attacking Rick Berg Pulled From Television Stations Due To Inaccuracies

For the second time an ad attacking Rick Berg – this one sponsored by Harry Reid’s Majority PAC – has been pulled from North Dakota television stations due to inaccuracies. Here’s the ad, which repeats false allegations about Rick Berg billing taxpayers for expensive trips (among other things). I wrote about those accusations previously, noting


Rick Berg: Heidi Heitkamp Can’t Be Both For And Against Energy Development

Rick Berg appeared on the Scott Hennen Show today, broadcasting from the North Dakota Petroleum Council’s annual meeting being held in Medora, and talked about the controversy over his opponent Democrat (though she doesn’t like that title) Heidi Heitkamp accepting contributions from a law firm engaged in anti-fracking legal activism. “You can’t be both for

Heitkamp, specifically, said that President Obama was “going to be amazing,” which obviously clashes with Heitkamp’s efforts to distance herself from Obama and her national


Heidi Heitkamp Has No Integrity

I don’t normally post a lot of videos produced by the Republican party, because they’re usually sort of shallow political point-scoring, but I really like this one from the NRSC celebrating the two-year anniversary of Heidi Heitkamp’s embrace of Obamacare. The video juxtaposes video of Heitkamp’s vigorous, passionate endorsement of Obamacare with her more recent
