    Rasmussen Reports ^ | August 16, 2010
    Republican challenger Rick Berg remains slightly ahead of incumbent Democratic Congressman Earl Pomeroy in the race for North Dakota’s only U.S. House seat. The latest Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of Likely North Dakota voters shows Berg with 53% support, his best showing in the contest to date, while Pomeroy picks up 44% of the vote. One percent (1%) favor some other candidate in the race, and three percent (3%) are undecided. Berg, a businessman and state legislator, has remained consistently ahead throughout 2010. His support has ranged from a low of 46% to a high of 53%. For Pomeroy, support...

    It’s the same old story in the race for U.S. Senate in North Dakota, with current Governor John Hoeven still earning support from nearly three-out-of-four voters in the state. A new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Hoeven earning 73% of the vote to his Democratic challenger Tracy Potter’s 19%. Two percent (2%) prefer some other candidate, while six percent (6%) are undecided.

    Republican Rick Berg has moved past the 50% mark in support against incumbent Democratic Congressman Earl Pomeroy in North Dakota’s race for U.S. House of Representatives. The latest Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows Berg picking up 52% support to Pomeroy’s 43%. Only two percent (2%) would vote for some other candidate, and three percent (3%) are undecided. While the new results are similar to those found March just after Pomeroy's vote for the national health care bill, the race was much closer last month, when Berg held a slim 49% to 45% edge. In February, Berg...

    North and South Dakota will make an interesting case study for those pundits who insist that Democrats who voted for ObamaCare will fare better at the polls. The at-large representative in North Dakota is Democrat Earl Pomeroy, who voted for both health care bills. The latest Rasmussen poll has him trailing state legislator Rick Berg, 51%-44%. Pomeroy appears to have been in trouble since he voted for ObamaCare last November.

    Democratic Congressman Earl Pomeroy’s vote Sunday for President Obama’s national health care plan seems to have had little impact so far on North Dakota’s U.S. House race. A new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state, taken Tuesday night, shows Republican Rick Berg leading Pomeroy by seven points, 51% to 44%. Just one percent (1%) prefer some other candidate in the race, and four percent (4%) are undecided. Last month, in Rasmussen Reports’ first Election 2010 survey of the race, Berg led Pomeroy by six, 46% to 40%. Incumbents who earn less than 50% of the vote...

    Congressional Quarterly ^ | March 20, 2010 | Emily Cadei
    Longtime state Rep. Rick Berg (R) will be North Dakota Republican's standard bearer in the race against Rep. Earl Pomeroy (D-N.D.). The state party endorsed Berg over Kevin Cramer, chairman of the North Dakota Public Service Commission, and two other GOP contenders at its convention in Grand Forks, N.D. on Saturday afternoon. Cramer, Berg's main rival for the nomination, has already said he would not run in the primary if he did not win the party endorsement. Berg, the former state House Majority Leader, led Pomeroy in Rasmussen Reports poll conducted in early February, which may have helped him convince...

    Senator Byron Dorgan has already decided not to seek reelection, and now a new Rasmussen Reports telephone survey of likely voters in the state finds Congressman Earl Pomeroy in close match-ups with two of his three likeliest Republican challengers. Rick Berg, a Fargo businessman and state representative, now leads Pomeroy 46% to 40%. Three percent (3%) prefer some other candidate, and 11% are undecided. Kevin Cramer, a state public service commissioner who has run unsuccessfully against Pomeroy twice before, now is in a virtual tie with the congressman. Pomeroy earns 45% support to Cramer’s 44%. Three percent (3%) favor another...

    Democrats moved closer to a final deal on health care reform Thursday — and for some vulnerable members, the end can’t come soon enough. In an emotional talk with other Democrats on the Ways and Means Committee this week, North Dakota Rep. Earl Pomeroy said the protracted debate is hurting him so badly back home that he might as well retire if it drags on much longer. A Democrat who attended the Ways and Means session said Pomeroy was “very angry” as he spoke about the delay. “Other folks were upset, but he was the maddest by far.” “I believe...

    There are two parts to this story, both equally devastating to the Democrats and spectacular for the Republicans. And is has to do with North Dakota. The first part came last Tuesday, when Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND) stunned the political world by announcing he would not seek a fourth term. Today part two is expected at 7 pm Eastern time today, when Gov. John Hoeven (R), who is in his third term and yet remains extraordinarily popular, is likely to announce he is a candidate to succeed Dorgan. The news has been confirmed by several sources, including the Bismarck Tribune,...

    Election 2010: The back-to-back Senate retirements of Byron Dorgan and Chris Dodd may be just the beginning. The people have seen the future of health care reform and found it doesn't work. Apres moi, le deluge. We don't know what the Mayan calendar says about 2010, but it's starting to look like the end of the world for Democratic electoral prospects. Americans who watched in shock as government tried to step between them and their doctors, may have the last laugh. The tea party isn't over until the angry mob votes. As rage grew over the attempt to nationalize one-sixth...

    Minot Daily News ^ | January 6, 2010 | Gov. John Hoeven
    Gov. John Hoeven, Bismarck I'm responding to a recent letter by Tom Magin concerning federal cap and trade legislation. I oppose Waxman-Markey, the cap and trade bill now being considered by Congress, as well as a recent ruling by the Environmental Protection Agency concerning regulation of CO2. In fact, I testified against the federal cap and trade bill before the Senate Committee on Environment and Public Works in Washington, D.C. last July. Clearly, Congress and the Administration are taking the wrong approach on cap and trade. Instead of Waxman-Markey, Congress needs to implement a comprehensive energy policy that will incentivize...

    A top ND Dem has asked MSNBC host Ed Schultz to return to his native state and run for Senate, Schultz said today. In an interview on MSNBC, where he hosts a nightly program, Schultz said he got a call from state Rep. Merle Boucher (D), the House Min. Leader, asking him to consider a bid. Schultz said he had worked hard to get where he was in his career, but he refused to rule out a bid. "I'm flattered. I'm honored. I can't say that I'm even considering it right now," Schultz said. "I'm in a different place right...

    Republic National Committee Chairman Michael Steele says Sen. Byron Dorgan's decision not to seek re-election "highlights just how vulnerable both Senate and House Democrats have become" since President Obama took office. Here is Steele's statement, released Tuesday: “Today’s announcement by Senator Byron Dorgan of North Dakota that he will not seek reelection in 2010 highlights just how vulnerable both Senate and House Democrats have become since deciding to walk in lockstep with President Obama’s government-run policies. "For nearly a year Congressional Democrats have been turning a deaf ear to the concerns of the American people and as the elections of...
