ND Speaks: Conrad earns high approval rating

Polls show that Senator Kent Conrad is the nation’s 2nd favorite Senator! Check out Survey USA. Scroll down to the third chart that shows Senator Conrad's rank as the nation's 2nd favorite Senator. Senator Conrad's approval rating is soaring at a record 71%! But this is no surprise to me and also not to the Fargo Forum. Senator Byron Dorgan also ranked in the top ten!
Our Congressmen's popularity was clearly shown in the '04 elections as Senator Dorgan swept the state by winning in a landslide reelection against Republican "challenger" Mike Liffrig. Dorgan won with 68% of the votes. Representative Earl Pomeroy also won his reelection bid against Republican challenger Duane Sand with 60% of the votes (http://www.cnn.com/ELECTION/2004/pages/results/states/ND/).
