The Dakota's are Conservative and Libertarian bastions of political thought, as such one would assume that almost every Statewide and Federal representative would be a voting member of the Republican Party. If you assumed that, you would be wrong - All three of North Dakota's federal representatives are Democrats, as are two of South Dakota's three US representatives.
But I do have some good news, all of those above mentioned Dakota political facts will be apart of the past come January of next Year. Why? Republican candidates in both Dakota's are leading longtime Incumbent Democratic Representatives by respectable margins with just 4.5 months until we reach November.
North Dakota House - Rasmussen.
North Dakota Representative Rick Berg (R) - 52%
US Representative Earl Pomeroy (D) - 43%
South Dakota House - Rasmussen.
South Dakota Representative Kristi Noem (R) - 53%
US Representative Stephanie Herseth-Sandlin (D) - 41%
Just for some political perspective: North Dakota hasn't elected a Republican to the US House since the late 1970's. And South Dakota has a well documented history of electing future Senator's to the US House, not surprising considering their current At-Large District status. If Republicans can capture both of these should be GOP seats - our road to 218 could be a whole lot easier.
Conservatism is going back to its' bastions and dominions this November - both Dakota's included.
