NORTH DAKOTA OUTDOORS AND BEYOND Senator Dorgan 1 NY Times 0
Senator Byron Dorgan (D- ND) recently set the New York Times straight by responding to an opinion piece the paper ran criticizing the Senator’s common sense plan to manage the overpopulation of ... Posted on 7/15/09 at 4:37 PM
A Dominican woman who once said in a video that she had sex with a New Jersey senator for money is now acknowledging that the allegation was false, according to a sworn statement released by a lawyer enmeshed in the accusations.
Former Sen. Pete Domenici has disclosed that he fathered a secret child in the 1970s with the 24-year-old daughter of one of his Senate colleagues — a startling revelation for a politician with a reputation as an upstanding family man.
The relationship between a U.S. Senator from New Jersey and a wealthy political benefactor has highlighted gaps in port security in the Dominican Republic, which has become the top transit point for drugs in the Caribbean. And the situation appears to be getting worse.
The North Dakota National Guard says five U.S. senators paid a visit to soldiers in Kosovo on Easter Sunday.
The group included North Dakota Democrats Byron Dorgan and Kent Conrad. More than 600 North Dakota soldiers are part of a NATO peacekeeping force in Kosovo.
Riding around Massachusetts in his pickup truck, Scott Brown hit a home run when he insisted: “This is not a Kennedy seat or a Democratic seat. It’s the people’s seat.” For a while, I thought Thomas Jefferson’s prophecy might be coming true:
“Whenever the people are well-informed, they can be trusted with their own government. ... Whenever things get so far wrong as to attract their notice, the people, if well informed, may be relied on to set them to rights.”

North Dakota’s political stare-down ended abruptly Jan. 5 when Byron Dorgan blinked.
The state’s junior U.S. senator said he would not run for re-election.
His announcement likely clears the way for Gov. John Hoeven, who announced his candidacy for the seat Monday, and probably to win, barring another bombshell.
After serving as North Dakota governor since 2000, John Hoeven said Monday night he believes he’s the right candidate to bring “common sense” policy back to Washington, D.C.
Hoeven announced his bid for the U.S. Senate before a crowd of 200 Republican supporters in the state capital at the first district conventions of the 2010 election season.

U.S. Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., told the Grand Forks Herald Thursday he doesn’t expect liberal radio host Ed Schultz will be the Democratic nominee to fill the Senate seat he’ll vacate in 2010.
“My own impression is that Ed Schultz enjoys the speculation, but I don’t think Ed’s going to run for the Senate,” Dorgan said.

The possibility of a political rematch between Gov. John Hoeven and Heidi Heitkamp, former state attorney general, emerged Thursday with word that Heitkamp is considering a run for North Dakota’s open U.S. Senate seat.
Heitkamp, a Mandan Democrat, issued a statement Thursday saying she is in the early stages of considering a run for the seat held by Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., who announced Tuesday that he won’t seek a fourth term.

Former Fargo radio personality and current MSNBC host Ed Schultz was thrust Wednesday onto the list of potential candidates for Sen. Byron Dorgan’s open seat in the fall.
The left-leaning, red-haired talk show host nicknamed “Big Eddie” didn’t rule out seeking the Democratic bid, but said he’s “a long way from any kind of decision.”

Besides depriving North Dakotans of a headline-making U.S. Senate campaign, Democrat Byron Dorgan’s decision to leave office has thrown activists in both parties into a tizzy.
Will Republican Gov. John Hoeven end his circumspection and get into the Senate race? Will former Democratic Attorney General Heidi Heitkamp attempt a political comeback? Does Republican Kevin Cramer want to run against Democratic Rep. Earl Pomeroy a third time?
