I remain so grateful to the many people across the state and our nation who encouraged me to run for the U.S. Senate. Public service is an admirable calling indeed and one that I remain committed to undertaking in the future -- once my business responisbilities are fulfilled, including the three hundred families who rely on Killdeer Mountain Manufacturing, and the busiensses who look for humble help from the Dakota Defense Alliance.
I look forward to keeping in touch. Please don't hesitate to contact me with any thoughts you may have in business or opportunities for advancement from our state.
While you are here, please take a look around and sign up to receive my newsletter, and, if you are so-inclined, drop me a line, I would love to hear from you.
Thanks for stopping by,

BISMARCK, N.D. (AP) — A new agency will help North Dakota businesses sell goods to the Pentagon by helping them navigate the byzantine world of military contracting, its supporters say.
The "procurement technical assistance center," or PTAC, will have offices in Bismarck and Fargo once it begins operating in January, the program's manager, Jeffrey Harris, said Monday.
North Dakota and Arizona are the only states that do not have a center, according to the federal Defense Logistics Agency and the Association of Procurement Technical Assistance Centers, a national group that represents them.
