The Minnesota Grizzly Bear

Roaring about life since 2009

ooh, ‘ello Gov’na!

Man, today just will not calm down! 

First Byron Dorgan reveals that he’s not seeking reelection this year

Then Nanci Pelosi takes a jab at Obama (ok, so that was yesterday, but I keep weird hours and haven’t slept yet)

Then North Dakota Governor John Hoeven announces he will run for Dorgan’s seat! 

With news that Sen. Byron Dorgan (D-ND) is not running for re-election, Politco reports that North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven (R) “is letting his political allies know that he’s preparing to run for the seat.”

“Hoeven’s decision gives Republicans an excellent shot at winning back the Senate seat in the solidly Republican state.”

Hoeven Will Run for Senate

In related news, Rep. Earl Pomeroy is still dodging the entire population of North Dakota due to his ill-considered vote in support of the healthcare bill.  Don’t worry, he won’t be an incumbent for long.  Go go gadget election day!

Have it good,

-Mike
