Will they be successful?

Chad Oban , former executive director of the North Dakota Democratic-NPL, joins this episode of Plain Talk Live to discuss it.

Also, a federal judge has dismissed the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe's lawsuit against the Dakota Access Pipeline, marking the end of an era of North Dakota politics, and at the national level Democrats suffered a defeat in their efforts to implement national election reforms.Is that issue over?
