Latest Headlines
The last thing we need is a bunch of opportunistic politicians jumping into the debate over carbon pipelines not to protect their constituents but to exact revenge on their political enemies.
State Rep. Rick Becker said his proposed legislation focuses on protecting the rights of landowners with the aim of ensuring property owners will be treated with respect and have a say in what happens to their land.
At a recent event put on by the District 7 NDGOP, they honored outgoing Sen. Nicole Poolman, but they didn't heap the same praise on Rep. Rick Becker, and Becker would really like you to know that he's not upset about it.
On this episode of Plain Talk, Sen. Kevin Cramer weighs in on being banned from Russia, President Joe Biden's student loan forgiveness, and the emergence of high-profile independent candidates in North Dakota's congressional races.

On this episode of Plain Talk, NDGOP Chairman Perrie Schafer says Republican candidates caught up in the controversy over bigoted speech in a North Dakota Young Republicans chat group may lose the support of the party.

"Having been an intern for Sen. John Hoeven, Cara Mund knows politics," writes Jim Shaw. "Her positions on important issues such as the high cost of prescription drugs and women’s reproductive rights represent the majority viewpoint in the state."
A group called the North Dakota Young Republicans organized a Telegram group chat for more than 100 of its members, including elected officials and candidates for office, that also featured racist and homophobic slurs.
