    A North Dakota man accused of plotting to use a forklift to flip over President Trump's limo to "kill the president" pleaded guilty on Friday. Gregory Lee Leingang, 42, was charged in federal court regarding his plan that revolved around Trump's visit to Mandan, North Dakota, in September 2017, the Grand Forks Herald reported.
  • Biased screener undermining Trump judicial nominees, Republicans say

    She’s not a senator, but Cynthia Nance plays an enormous role in shaping the debate over some of President Trump’s judicial picks. Ms. Nance, former dean of the University of Arkansas School of Law, handles the American Bar Association’s judicial ratings for nominees to federal courts in North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri and Arkansas, which make up the federal 8th Circuit. The ABA’s role is one the more opaque parts of the process, but Republicans are pushing it into the light, accusing her of allowing personal bias, particularly a fealty to abortion rights, to color her ratings....

    Every red state Democratic senator who voted against Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation in October lost their re-election bids. Democratic Sens. Heidi Heitkamp of North Dakota, Claire McCaskill of Missouri and Joe Donnelly of Indiana voted against President Donald Trump’s Supreme Court pick – all three lost on Tuesday. The only red state Democrat to support Kavanaugh was rewarded with a re-election victory. West Virginia Sen. Joe Manchin won Tuesday night against Republican state Attorney General Patrick Morrisey. His success allowed the Democratic Party to salvage what was otherwise a lackluster performance up and down Senate races. Trump campaigned...
  • Pro-Life Kevin Cramer Defeats Heidi Heitkamp, Who High-Fived Senators After Voting for Abortion

    In another Senate victory for pro-life advocates, North Dakota Democrat Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, who became nationally infamous after she celebrated a vote to defeat a ban on late-term abortions, has gone down in defeat. In January, Democrats in the United States Senate gave each other a high five, normally meant to celebrate camaraderie and a job well done, on something dark and disgusting. After the vote to defeat the bill to ban abortions after 20 weeks, Democrats on the Senate floor gave each other a high-five. How members of the Senate can explain their actions is beyond most Americans —...

    In the latest gaffe in her bid for re-election, U.S. Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., endorsed false claims made in a Facebook ad paid for by her state's Democratic Party that say the state’s hunters could lose their hunting licenses in nearby states if they vote Tuesday. Heitkamp, who’s trailing Republican challenger Kevin Cramer on average by 11 points, hasn't backpedaled from the endorsement, telling reporters that it is “really important that people understand the consequences of voting.” She also said the ad is true. “Voting means you are a resident, it means you pay taxes here, it means that if...

    Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-ND) is in trouble. The North Dakota Democrat is about to be trounced by Republican Congressman Kevin Cramer. Like all red state Democrats, she was facing an uphill battle. First, her 2012 win was very slim; she won by less than 3,000 votes. Second, her state is deep red and was carried heavily by President Trump. Third, she made a horrible blunder in the tail end of the race, printing an open letter ad attacking Cramer for his remarks about the sexual misconduct allegations that were lobbed against Brett Kavanaugh during his Supreme Court confirmation battle. The...

    Democrats are warning hunters if they show up at the polls they may miss out on the next hunting season. The ads are well-designed and authoritative and the message, misleading: “Attention Hunters: Voting in North Dakota could cost you your out-of-state hunting licenses.” Put another way, it seems the party is telling voters that they can’t exercise one right without losing another.

    (Washington DC) Project Veritas Action Fund has released undercover video from incumbent Senator Heidi Heitkamp’s campaign and Senate staff exposing bait and switch politics to court moderate voters. This is the fifth undercover video report Project Veritas has released in a series revealing secrets and lies from political campaigns in 2018. Said James O’Keefe, founder and president of Project Veritas Action: “As we’ve seen from our undercover reports this October, politicians, will lie, obfuscate and hide their real politics to win a few votes. Senator Heidi Heitkamp from North Dakota is no exception.”

    After months of promising a November “blue wave,” Democrats’ chances of taking back Congress are shrinking by the day.Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp is on track to lose her seat in North Dakota by double-digits. A recent New York Times/Siena poll has Republican senatorial candidate Marsha Blackburn ahead by more than 14 points. Sen. Ted Cruz is now consistently polling with at least a 7-point advantage.All told, Real Clear Politics is projecting Republicans will hold on to at least 50 seats in the Senate, and several of the remaining “toss-up” races are in states that normally lean Republican, including Arizona, Indiana, and Missouri. Republicans are...

    As Twitchy told you last night, a group of women outed as sexual assault survivors (in some cases incorrectly) in a campaign ad for Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp are currently exploring legal action. With good reason. What Heitkamp’s campaign did isn’t just reckless and outrageous; it’s also potentially very dangerous. At least one woman outed in the ad is now reportedly fearing for her life:

    The battle over the confirmation of Associate Justice Brett Kavanaugh to the U.S. Supreme Court has helped Republicans in the short term more than Democrats. Since the stunning “thumbs down” moment by the late Senator John McCain, R-Ariz., Republican enthusiasm has ebbed-and-flowed, while Democrats consistently reported higher levels of interest. For Republicans, the challenge this election cycle was two-fold: combating voter complacency and maintaining the more moderate wing of their coalition, specifically women, and even more specifically, Republican women. There was no downside for the GOP. They needed to increase enthusiasm, something the controversy over the confirmation of Justice Kavanaugh...

    Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's incendiary suggestion this week that liberals "cannot be civil" with Republicans any longer is unproductive and simply "ridiculous," a top Democratic senator said Wednesday. The stark repudiation of Clinton's comments by Sen. Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., a vulnerable red-state Democrat seeking re-election this year, comes as top Republicans have lined up in recent days to criticize Democrats' fiery rhetoric amid the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court.

    The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to toss out an appeals court order that allows North Dakota to enforce its voter ID requirement during the 2018 elections. The request to toss out the order came from a group of Native American residents who are challenging a new state law that requires voters to present identification that includes a current residential street address. The challengers argued the new rule disenfranchises a disproportionate share of the population because many Native American voters live on reservations with no street addresses. The District Court agreed and temporarily blocked the state secretary from enforcing the...

    BISMARCK — A Minnesota woman pleaded guilty to voting twice during the 2016 election in a Cass County (N.D.) court Tuesday, Sept. 25, marking a rare prosecution of such an offense in North Dakota. Hannan Yassin Aboubaker of Shakopee, Minn., entered an Alford plea on a Class A misdemeanor "election offense," meaning she didn't admit wrongdoing but acknowledged she may have been found guilty based on the evidence. Her sentence was deferred and she was placed on unsupervised probation for six months, two months after which the case would be dismissed and the file would be sealed.
