THE NEW FORTY My bipartisan disappointment...
I think that doing or saying nothing in the face of actions or ideas that you perceive to be inherently wrong or divisive, is -in and of itself -a form of tacit approval. I know I am not alone in this... Posted on 9/16/12 at 10:59 AM
A year ago, Rick Berg’s goal was to visit three North Dakota cities every day as he campaigned for the state’s open U.S. Senate seat.
Last week, about six months after losing that expensive race to Democrat Heidi Heitkamp by about 3,000 votes, Berg’s agenda consisted of attending his son’s three-day soccer tournament in the Twin Cities.
In farewell remarks on the floor of the U.S. House of Representatives today, Rep. Rick Berg, R-N.D., urged his colleagues to set aside partisan politics while addressing fiscal challenges facing the country.
Come January, North Dakota U.S. Rep. Rick Berg won't have a job or hold a public office for the first time in almost three decades. In an election where control of the U.S. Senate was thought to be at stake, the freshman Republican congressman gambled on winning an open seat and lost.
The decision headed off a potential recount that could have cost tens of thousands of dollars and dragged the contentious campaign out for another month. Speaking before the United Republican Committee of Cass County in Fargo, Berg said that the margin of about 3,000 votes between him and Heidi Heitkamp was likely to hold up.
U.S. Rep. Rick Berg, who refused to concede the U.S. Senate race early this morning despite trailing in unofficial results by 2,814 votes, is holding a press conference this afternoon about the status of the race.
A tight U.S. Senate race in North Dakota between Rick Berg and Heidi Heitkamp has some people talking about a possible recount.
There is also talk a recount would create nightmares based on North Dakota’s election rules and the fact it is the only state without voter registration.
We working-class North Dakotans should have known better: someone whose estimated net worth ranges from about $22 million to $65 million isn’t likely to represent our interests.
It’s a shame, but we can fix it in November.
If candidates such as Heidi Heitkamp are elected, the ideology of President Barack Obama, Harry Reid and Nancy Pelosi likely will be followed. If candidates such as Rick Berg are elected, that ideology will not be.
Democrats are failing to slow the nation's growing $16 trillion debt because they won't agree on budget and tax reforms in the U.S. Senate, Republican Rick Berg said Thursday in his final duel with Democrat Heidi Heitkamp in North Dakota's closely watched Senate race.
