TOP STORIES:

NORTH DAKOTA PRIMARY

BISMARCK, N.D. — Elections officials are hoping local issues across North Dakota will help a primary lacking big-race drama. Recent nominating conventions settled most intra-party questions ahead of Tuesday’s primary. That, coupled with no statewide ballot questions, may make it tough to lure voters to the polls.

2018 MIDTERMS-NORTH DAKOTA SENATE

MANDAN, N.D. — Heidi Heitkamp has no patience for resisting. That’s what the North Dakota Democrat says, though resistance also is a luxury Heitkamp can little afford in one of the nation’s most Donald Trump-friendly states. The first-term U.S. senator, among the most vulnerable in her party seeking re-election this year, is maneuvering herself at once as an ally of the Republican president on policy, and a polite opponent at other times.

OIL PIPELINE

BISMARCK, N.D. — The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers within another two months expects to wrap up environmental study of the Dakota Access oil pipeline that a judge ordered a year ago, after meeting in recent weeks with four American Indian tribes battling the pipeline in court. The tribe leading the lawsuit still feels it hasn’t had a meaningful role in the process and vows to continue the fight, even a year after oil began flowing through the $3.8 billion pipeline.
