This article from Hannah Schlosser about a relaxation station provided by Sanford at the Fargo Street Fair is a little frustrating. “New addition take stress off of mothers at the street fair,” the headline tells us . The “new addition” is an area where moms can relax and feed their kids (including breastfeeding) and change diapers.
The Kilbourne Group, a Fargo-based development company founded (well before he took office) by Governor Doug Burgum, is building a 235 foot tower in downtown Fargo called Block 9. Said tower would block ability of Prairie Public to push radio and television signals to a repeater tower in Wheatland that, in turn, feeds those signals to pretty much all of North Dakota outside of the Fargo region.
Priorities USA is a Super PAC founded by Barack Obama campaign alumni which supported the Obama campaign in 2012 as well as the Hillary Clinton campaign in 2016. They’ve gotten involved in the 2018 election campaign by running ads attacking Congressman Kevin Cramer. You’ve probably seen the ad being promoted on Facebook.
MINOT, N.D.—Minnesota regulators have given Canadian company Enbridge approval to go forward with replacing their Line 3 pipeline. That line was originally constructed in the 1960s but in recent years has needed constant maintenance to keep it in good working order. It needs replacement to cut down on the amount of digging and construction along its route.

You can always tell when a political campaign has landed a punch when they inspire a television rebuttal from the other side.

Last week it was reported that the local cost of President Trump visiting Fargo to rally for U.S. Senate candidate Kevin Cramer was about $104,000.

MINOT, N.D.—One of the most bedeviling problems facing the great state of North Dakota are chronic labor shortages, as generations of policymakers can attest. A factor in labor shortages is a paucity of services such as child care. Contributing to the child care shortage, perhaps, is a regulatory regime for care providers which is both arduous for care providers and capricious for those unlucky enough to find themselves in the crosshairs of enforcement.
On social media, North Dakota Democrats are still promoting their U.S. Senate candidate Heidi Heitkamp as a close ally of President Donald Trump. But in a new ad Congressman Kevin Cramer’s campaign uses footage of President Donald Trump from his recent rally in Fargo as a rebuttal to that increasingly absurd narrative.

Kudos to Fargo Mayor Tim Mahoney for requesting quantification for the expenses related to President Donald Trump’s recent visit to Fargo. Now that law enforcement officials have had the chance to add the numbers up, we learn that the visit cost about $104,000.
