N.D. tea party scheduled for February
The first shot across the bow of Gov. John Hoeven's new bid for the Senate seat being vacated in a year by Sen. Byron Dorgan, D-N.D., is coming from the starboard side. Organizers of Tea Parties in the state, mostly at the right wing of the Republican Party, are planning a convention...

It would have been big news had North Dakota Gov. John Hoeven said no to a run for the U.S. Senate. As it was, his announcement Monday to seek the seat being vacated by retiring Democratic Sen. Byron Dorgan was anticlimactic at best, ho-hum at worst. To no one's surprise, GOP faithful...

WASHINGTON -- The Jan. 19 special election to fill Ted Kennedy's U.S. Senate seat is beginning to resemble the 2008 presidential election, when the "inevitable" Hillary Clinton was overtaken by a surprising phenomenon named Barack Obama. Only this time, it's a wunderkind from the...

Coleman relies on 'equal protection' argument
