  •  It still makes me angry that Rick Berg lied (5+ / 0-)

    his way to the House two years ago.  Losing Earl Pomeroy took away any clout we had in the House, possibly leading to difficulty passing a farm bill.   In hindsight, it seems Earl is doing okay, and it got Berg out of our state politics, hopefully for good.  It pushed Heidi to run.  Kevin Cramer is not any better than Berg, but his is a two year term, and hopefully, he can be booted in a couple of years if nothing gets done.  Cramer is actually facing some ethics issues in ND regarding taking contributions from entities he regulated as Public Service Commissioner.  Heidi's campaign had internal numbers that showed her performing much stronger than any of the rightwing polls indicated.  She will be a great Senator.  I look forward to hearing her interviews on the political talk shows.

      Berg lost big in Fargo/Cass County...his hometown.
